Squid defaults to deny all out of the box, although it fairly easy to change
it to only allow your subnet
i would be intersted in your results. Have you put any parent cache details
into Squid? Dialnet use the cacheing functionality of I-Gear (the filtering
tool) on some services, you need to ensure that your cache's are talking to
get the best performance....
I have written a set of Perl scripts using the LWP modules for test
performance of HTTP traffic and can can also compare proxy versus non proxy
traffic, if anyone is interested in trying them out on their ISP let me
know. They can also test ftp (using the Net::FTP module), they are a little
raw at the moment, but all contributions appreciated :-)

Subject: Re: [suse-linux-uk-schools] Squid
I am in the process of trying to set up a new
proxy server for

We have NT as the main server but I am trying to replace an existing NT
proxy using OSS with SuSE/Squid. I have the machine configured and it is
going out through our dialnet hardware server but the local Win95 machines
get an error message saying that access is denied to Squid.
My colleague is looking for a free Windows proxy
so the race is on...
Any help would be appreciated.
make sure that the default setting of
http_access deny all
still isnt set :)
if it is then you need to read up on acls. but for testing purposes you
could very quickley change to http_access allow all, but i
this for permanent use.
oh and all ways remember to do a squid -k reconfigure after editing
