how-to configure squid proxy server. I still haven't been able to find a solution. I want to set up squid as a open http proxy server. So people from other networks can connect through the proxy without having to login.Do I have to use iptables to reroute http traffic to squids proxy port? I have forwarded the port in my ISP modem so I know thats working, its the squid config that has flaws or iptables locally.
We have two offices suppose A and B. At office A, we use centos 5.3 computer as router and squid proxy server. At office B we use a cisco router to connect to Internet. Computers at office A that has direct access to Internet can access computers behind cisco router at office B using vnc viewer. But computers at office A that can use internet only through squid proxy can't access computers behind cisco router at office B. Is there any way so that I could allow squid clients to access computer behind cisco router at office B using vnc viewer.

I have 4 servers running squid/3.1.1 proxy server. Since the latest version I can no longer FTP. I have posted this problem in multiple places but have received almost no response. I've found several other post to this problem throughout the Internet which have also gone unanswered. So, once again, I thought I'd give it a try. As I said "I have 4 servers running the newest version of Squid". When I try to access an ftp, any ftp, I receive an error (check attached image). This was never a problem until just recently. Squid should work perfectly find with ftp, it is not a strictly http proxy.
I turned my firewall off just to make sure, still had the same issue. If I jump directly on the server itself with no proxy settings set in the browser it will work fine. As soon as I set the browser setting to access the Squid software I get the same error. I've included my squid config (which is unchanged from the default settings), maybe somebody better versed than myself can point out an obvious flaw. Everything else seem to work just fine, it's only FTP that's a problem.
I have configured Squid proxy on RHEL 5. Now I want all squid clients to use default website which is set by Squid Proxy Server. So whenever user opens their browser they will visit same website automatically.
I am starting to get bottlenecks in the loading of webpages via squid. It is not the actual playback of video that has performance issues, this is very good. However, when a webpage is first requested, it is the initial response that takes more than a few seconds to load the page. I am wondering how to troubleshoot the issue as I don't know whether it is squid, the dns lookup, the number of users, RAM, or the bandwidth. Bandwidth seems to be the least likely since the server has a high bandwidth and video streaming appears to have no problems. I do not have caching turned on yet, which would certainly help because I do not want to cache flb, mp3, etc. files and the last time I turned on caching the performance was actually worse. The slow loading of pages has only just beguin to creep into the performance, it wasn't an issue before.
Centos 5.4 distro using on remote machine. I have remote site where internet access given via squid proxy. So when we enter in browser it start working internet fine. But on command line (bash shell prompt terminal) like wget, ping, nslookup, traceroute etc., these commands does not work.

My default firewall policy is to drop input output and forward, i have already set my firewall to accept and workout the squid and it is working.
Here is the relevant rules i have on my firewall:
Here is the sample conf i am using for squid:
Always_direct allow all When using version 2.7.x i was able to make it transparent when i used the below rules:
I readed the Docs on the squid page but the above rules can't be reproduced to 3.1 and i don't wish to use such rules to make it transparent or hidden so i want some help to figure out why it inst transparent.
I am trying to set up squid as an intercepting proxy on a bridging (as opposed to NAT/routing) PC. I followed this guide on freshmeat - however, when I started squid it said the httpd_accel_* lines were unrecognized, so I commented them.
I have the bridging side working alright, but when I try to access a website from a machine using the bridge, Squid gives an error saying it cannot find the site, and only listing the non-domain part of the URL.
For example, if I try to go to [URL] , the Squid error page says it cannot find the server /questions/
I'm using Squid 3 on Ubuntu Karmic. (I don't have any reason for using Squid 3 over 2.whatever, I just picked the newer one).
Also, a side-question - since no doubt someone will ask for my squid config file, what's an easy way to strip the comments so it's not half a mile long when I post it?
I am using Fedora 9, I have compile the squid with source code, i also deleted the old RPM of squid. i then edited the squid.conf in /usr/local/squid/etc and set http_port 3128 transparent and allowed in my acl to my local network but the transparent proxy is not working. if i remove transparent proxy then squid works fine. when i try to make it transparent the squid access.log file does not show any request coming to it (no activity). i have also forwarded all the incoming traffic to squid port 3128. Can anybody tell me why my transparent proxy is not functional.
