Ubuntu Servers :: Squid Proxy Very Slow For Web In Default Config?
I just set up squid for the first time. I have zero experience with proxy servers. I used this guide:[URL](I also looked at a few other guides such as this one:ttp:// However, I wanted to most barebones config to start with and the link I used was the simplest.)So now that I have it set up, I'm testing it with FoxyProxy. It is not working well. I went to The download and ping tests were just as fast as without the proxy, but the upload test fails completely.Furthermore, many web pages load very slowly or not at all. So performance is very mixed, but mostly poor.

Server :: Squid As Reverse Proxy - Too Slow ?
I've been using squid-cache for a long time for authentication/authorization. It has work fine for years, but now it starts working too slow only in one computer (the others, works fine).

It's configured as a reverse proxy.

I see it can be a DNS problem, but the computer is configured with the same dns servers in resolv.conf that the other computers have.

I use squid 2.6.stable14 on RHEL 4.4.

If I restart the service (service squid restart) it works fine, but 15-20 minutes later, the problem repeats.

Server :: Make Squid 2.6 Stable As Transparent Proxy Server?
I want to make a transparent squid proxy server in centos. The squid proxy version is 2.6 stable. I made a normal squid server but want to make it transparent so that users do not need to enter the proxy settings in web browser. Even i searched about this on google but not getting it properly.I have two lan cards on centos system. ETH1 used for LAN and ETH2 used for WAN. And in this squid.conf i written "http_port transparent" and i also added a rule in iptables which is "iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128" but still i have to enter proxy settings at client's web browser to use internet

Fedora Servers :: Reverse The Proxy With Squid?
I have a reverse proxy set up with squid. I'm going to try and explain what it's doing and I apologize for it being confusing, I'll do the best I can to describe my problem. First, it's for our phone system. We run a ShoreTel Voip system. The owner has decided he wants me to setup MCM (Mobile Call Manager), which from what I can see is an under developed, and almost impossible to get help with Shoretel software. But he's convinced he needs it for his Iphone. It's supposed to, in a nutshell, turn his Iphone into his work phone with all the advantages and doodads that come with it. Apparently, "they have an app for that". On the server side, I need to setup a reverse proxy back into the network on our phone server. Simple enough, I did this with squid. I used the following lines:


http_port 80 accel defaultsite=
cache_peer parent 80 0 no-query originserver name=myAccel
acl our_sites dstdomain



always_direct allow all It most definitely is allowing traffic back to the phone server, the problem is, it hands out my internal server address to the outside client. So for instance, if I connect to the outside routable address with my phone, it will immediately change the url to which is the inside nat address of my phone server. Which of course doesn't work, since I couldn't browse to that address from the outside. It does however work from the inside of the network, obviously because is accessible from the inside.

Fedora Servers :: Squid 3.1.1 Proxy Server Will Not FTP
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.

Ubuntu Servers :: System Time Runs Slow Hareware Time Run Right?
I am running my Ubuntu 32 bit server on top of Windows 7 64 bit with VirualBox. It's a 2 core Atom. It's been working good for about half a year. But the last about 6 weeks the system time only in Ubuntu is going slow. About -8 per 24 hours! I can only guess because I have more things running in my Windows 7 and Ubuntu.

I can set it right by coping the hareware time to system time with this command:

hwclock --hctosys

I want to run a crontab to have that command run every minute. But it don't seem to run.

Fedora Servers :: SQUID Slow / Debugging It?
I have squid running on F12 fully updated. Pretty much stock config except bigger cache size.

Over time it seems to start lagging and occupying more memory. Currently using ~400Mb after a couple of months. I'm sure its causing some lag / refreshes because if I turn if off and go direct to internet the same site I had to hit refresh on, loads instantly.

Going through the logs in /var/log/squid I don't see anything suspicious with the untrained eye, whats a better way of debugging it to see where/why the delays are happening? Its a single user setup (for fun really lol) so theres a lot of misses in access.log. cache.log just has a handful of bad img headers which does not line up with lagging websites.code...

Ubuntu Servers :: Slow Connection To Server Over SSH/Proxy?
Im running Ubuntu 10.04, currently living out of the country from where my server is located. We have a 4 Mbps dsl connection that speedtests fine to the closest server, and if we test from our present location to the server closest to our server the speed is great as well. When I SSH in to my server and setup a socks 5 proxy the speed goes through the floor. We barely get .2 Mbs. Whether I use putty or terminal from our mac, they both get the same slow speed. I've searched the forums and google extensively, but I haven't been able to come up with anything yet.

Ubuntu Servers :: Squid (2.7) Flooded With Time Waits
We have implemented a Ubuntu with Squid (2.7) & Dansguardian, Webmin and the webmin modules for these services. Server was running fine for about 6 months then suddenly there are hundreds of TIME_WAIT's when using:
netstat -antup

This causes the clients to get this error on their browser:
commBind: Cannot bind socket FD 10 to *:0 (98) Address already in use
Even 1 single client working will fill 3 pages of TIME_WAIT

Clients are Mac's bound to OD & AD (magic triangle). We reverted the vm image to a snapshot back when was working fine but problem remains. We created a server from scratch and same issue. We use ldap_auth to the active directory for authentication:
Server is 2008 R2
