A friend of mine has just recieved a HP laptop from Estelle.
It is completely unconfigured, with a standard windows XP install.
No teacher specific applications.
No education specific ISP setup.
Surely we could do better in an afternoon.
The machine was from Oxford LEA under a programme called 'Laptops for
I think something should be done.
Apparently over 60 percent of teachers at the school have a laptop
delivered at different times, but with no customisation at all, so they
don't get used.
I think this is awful.
What is the output of /var/log/squid/cache.log
What is the output of /var/log/squid/access.log
What message is returned to the browser?
look at the download section at
That's the file we used in some schools we set up.
partent 80 3130???
80 is not a normal proxy port? it's the standard http port.

Thanks for the replies I received to my last post, it turned out to be a
of dirty cd, dodgy CD-ROM drive and overheating problems!
I have now installed everything, and trying to get to grips with the way it
I need to try to integrate it with a NT 4 domain database if at all
possible, using NT passwords
would be a VERY good move.
I am trying to move our system slowly but surely to Linux rather than MS, at
the moment Outlook
express is giving us major problems with pop3. What I want to do is,
configure Outlook for IMAP access,
(as an added bonus it looks like LDAP will do our system wide address book).
Allow web mail from anywhere,
and add a IMAP tool to our new Linux machines (once I have built them!).
I was assuming that I could replace the Unix password file with winbind,
giving me common users and passwords,
this looks like a big assumption?
Can I configure something to populate the LDAP server with all our user
names etc, and then use something else
to use NT password authentication?
Thanks for any help anyone can give! I am getting a bit out of my
Queen Elizabeth`s Grammar School
We have been using a dialup connection and squid successfully as a proxy
for the past few months. However, we have just been connected to broadband
(18 months later than promised) and I now need to change the squid.conf
file to connect to the new service.
Broadband is provided through embc (East Midlands Broadband Consortium)
and we have a router on site, 10.0.12.1, which machines can use as a
gateway to access the embc proxy. We have ip numbers for the embc dns and
proxy but I cannot get machines on our network to connect through the
When an individual client connects directly through the gateway to the
embc proxy there are no login screens and internet access (filtered) is
immediately available. I assume there must be some way of enabling the
squid box to do the same and then proxy the internet to the rest of the
machines on the network.
Can anyone help?
