    Squid and RM proxies

    Hello all,

    Does anyone know if Squid can use a RM Proxy as a parent proxy. If so what would one put in the squid config file to get it to work,

    i.e. ours is adslcache.rmplc.co.uk on port 8080
    so i have entered:

    cache_host above parent 8080 3130 no-query default but when i run a test on the squid it fails?

    thanks in advance for any help.

    Re: Squid and RM proxies

    OK i entered this into the squid.conf file and clients able to access the internet by going direct to a site, but when clicking on any links the pages time out.

    Why does this happen?

    I have looked at the config files but cannot see what would be blocking these.
    any ideas?

    Re: Squid and RM proxies

    A good starting point is to
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/squid/logs/access.log
    (or wherever your squid log is -also see the cache.log)
    and see what errors appear whan you click the links

    Sounds like DNS, have you configured the RM dns servers on the squid box?
