Re: problem regarding squid proxy

Hello Guddu,
have you check logs? what it showing?

troubleshooting: [do this on the proxy server]

'tail -f /var/log/messages' in a seperate bash window while restarting squid
'tail -f /var/log/squid /access.log' in a seperate bash window while
attempting connections to the proxy server. watch the output for success & failure.

also check the configuration file

cd /etc/squid/

any recent changes there? thanks,

Re: problem regarding squid proxy

That could be an name resolution problem, a problem with the site's web server, or the page was moved.

Probably, your squid server is not causing those errors.

Re: problem regarding squid proxy

This errors may not be related to proxy. Try to open the web pages from the server, when squid is running:

lynx sitename
or
wget sitename

Re: problem regarding squid proxy

HI,

Check the squid server by
#ps -ef | grep squid

check /var/log/messages

I think, your squid is working fine check with google.com, yahoo.com.
#lynx google.com

if some sites does not open. that means there is some problem in sites wich you are trying to browse

Re: problem regarding squid proxy

Hi,
Check the squid log and /var/log/message
Or
Is there any acl you are using ? check that also.
