    Geoff

    I have been playing around for about 2 days now not really getting anywhere. I noticed that after editing the conf file I was getting FAILED in the startup for the firewall.

    So I reinstalled Clarkconnect all was fine untill I tried to edit the squid config file. Then on reboot I got this Failed again.

    I am using notepad to do the editing and I am thinking after re reading your posts that this my be the problem, if it is can you recomend a freeware text editor for this purpose.

    Re: Cascading proxy servers

    It might be a good idea to learn using a *nix text editor on windows.
    Vi and emacs are both available for windows:

    http://www.vim.org/download.php
    http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/ntemacs.html

    Its can be a religious debate as to which is 'better'

    Re: Cascading proxy servers

    Well I must be doing something wrong!!

    I have just tried editing the config file with textpad and the samething happens.

    Here is what I am doing

    1. connect to the Linux box with winSCP

    2. browse to the config file

    3. save to the desktop

    4 edit with textpad

    5 upload the config file

    6. reboot the linuxbox

    7. firewall fails on reboot

    8. putting the config file back to its original state fails

    Is there a command that I can use to check the installation of squid ect

    you'll need to login via ssh or on the console:

    locate the squid binary file - I assume its in /usr/sbin/squid -but depends on your distro.
    Code:
     whereis squid
    might help

    Code:
    /usr/sbin/squid -k parse
    will output any errors in the config.

    you shouldn't need to reboot - try
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/squid restart
    and
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/squid status
    to see if its running

    Re: Cascading proxy servers

    Thanks for all that, what a learning curve this is turning into!

    It seems that there are no errors in the config file, so I guess I need to check the lines I am entering again to make sure I have got everthing correct

    Re: Cascading proxy servers

    Hi Back again, Well I have had the box talking to the internet, when I put the dns server addresses for the ISP into the settings, but if I reboot the settings revert back to the network DNS and therefore the can't talk to the internet. Once I correct this problem it can take nearly a day before the internet is back.

    Any Ideas?

    You're not using DHCP on this box are you?

    Re: Cascading proxy servers

    What are the contents of your interfaces and resolv.conf files ?

    Re: Cascading proxy servers

    The DHCP on the box is not running, although there is DHCP on my network

    This is the Resol.conf

    Code:
    ; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
    search schoolname.lea.sch.uk
    nameserver 10.2.x.x
    nameserver 62.171.x.x
    nameserver 62.171.x.x
    I don't know where the interface.conf is on the system ( still learning )

    Re: Cascading proxy servers

    Perhaps you could try a recursive GREP to see if there is another file with your normal LAN DNS settings
