Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a small business network consisting of XP clients and linux servers, the XP clients use squid as a proxy server. I am trying to configure squid to allow some P.C.s access to internal network servers and external websites and others only access to internal network servers. So far I have :

Allow manager localhost
Deny manager
Allow purge localhost
Deny purge
Deny !Safe_ports
Deny CONNECT !SSL_ports
Deny denied
Allow localnet
Allow localhost
Deny all

However a P.C. whose I.P address is in the denied list gets this error from firefox :

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

  • This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies <

Instead of the web page that should show for denied P.C.s. What am I doing wrong?

I needed to add an allowed acl containing the internal servers, with a type as "Web server addresses" :

Allow manager localhost
Deny manager
Allow purge localhost
Deny purge
Deny !Safe_ports
Deny CONNECT !SSL_ports
Allow Int_servers
Deny denied
Allow localnet
Allow localhost
Deny all
