lightspeed and proxies
I surmised we can enable lightspeed quite simply with our own proxies by disabling chaining or something similar.
On the main staff proxy merely changing "never_direct allow all" to "always_direct allow all" works! (debian 7.2 with squid 2.7 stable 9)
On the guest wireless, doing the above causes the error "connection refused". (debian 5.09 with squid 2.6 stable 5) - no idea why
On the pupil isa 2006 server. adding an always direct rule or changing the last-default-rule to direct causes the error "•Error Code 10061: Connection refused " - no idea why
anyone else had/solved proxy issues with lightspeed?

Are your guest wireless/pupil network are on the range given to you by OCL? I read somewhere that if its not (e.g. you route a 192.168.x.x) that it wont work, probably because the lightspeed device wont have the correct routing for you.
If that is the case then it would seem to me that you would need to continue proxy-ing request but onto a direct connection instead to an upstream server.

yes we have our own internal ip ranges so will need to continue using our proxies. the problem I'm having is getting "proxy-ing request but onto a direct connection" to work.

We run a fake version of "proxy.lancsngfl.ac.uk" in our office that proxies requests to direct, I will look at the config on that when Im back there this afternoon.

it occurs to me after reading the other thread that lightspeed might not be enabled on our curriculum connections.
Seeking clarification at the moment.

Should only be on the admin, the details of your date should be on the portal.

You must be in the first phase then.

anyone got local proxy (ISa server) working with lightspeed?? - currently trying to change settings - I presume its the web chaning part that we have to remove? (or change?) anyone got advice on what to change?

Lightspeed is working with our ISA 2006 box, I changed the last default rule in the network config to retrieve the requests directly from specified destination.

thanks for the reply, just to confirm - that's in "web chaning" \ default rule \ Action \ process requests by " retrieving them directly from the specified destination"

configuration, networks, web chaining,
create a new rule called always_direct
action - retrieving them directly from specified destination
to - external
