I have made a start on our new Squid box to replace our aging ISA box, and have hit a small roadbump.
I've set it up very basically so far - namely defining the access rules (ie. saying people on our IP range can use it), setting the cache_peer rule for the parent proxy (swgfl) and set the visible_name value (morbo.schooldomain.etc...).
Now, when I go to the hostname direct (namely morbo:8080, as that is the port I am using) it gives me the error message I expect - invalid request.
But if I set the box as the proxy in Chrome (or anything else), it times out on everything. It worked once, for the first request I made to google.co.uk but that was it. Everything else just dies.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Anything you would like to see, logs etc... can be provided.
Ok, well. That was dumb of me...
never_direct allow all is the fix here.
It was trying to process requests directly. Stupid thing. :)
Well, to be honest, i've not played with Squid much before, and there are a lot of settings - this one being one that wasn't in any of the 'quickstart' tutorials around the net. :) I feel a wiki entry coming on.
