Cant access few sites through Proxy server

 Hi Gurus,


I am not able to access few sites via squid proxy server.


Proxy version using is:




[root@proxy01 whitelist]# cat /etc/*release*
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4)
[root@proxy01 whitelist]#


It is not able to ping to the concerned wesite but connect locally.


[proxy01]# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.


It is able to access the concerned site from proxy server locally.


[proxy01]# wget
           => `index.html'
Resolving done.
Connecting to[]:80... connected.
Proxy request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 306 [text/html]

13:16:28 (298.83 KB/s) - `index.html' saved [306/306]


The squid config file says :

dbhome /usr/local/squidGuard/db
logdir /usr/local/squidGuard/log


dest oksites { domainlist whitelist/okdomains
               urllist whitelist/okurls

dest gio_old {
         domainlist gio/historical_domains
         urllist    gio/historical_urls

I have added the needed sites in the below files as per squidGuard.conf


Binary file okdomains.db matches
Binary file okurls.db matches

And re-read the configuration files using :


squidGuard -C okdomains

squidGuard -C okurls


And while checking with command  ==> client -p 8080 8080

getting below errors.

The requested URL could not be retrieved

Unable to determine IP address from host name for

Could you please point me if Iam wrong some where?
