I have a very curious problem on my RedHat linux Server. I have a Squid proxy server installed and operating wonderfully for WAN addresses. However when I try to access my local MediaWiki system I get
The requested URL could not be retrieved The following error was encountered: Unable to determine IP address from host name for ServerName
When I restart squid I am able to access these local addresses for about 5 minutes, but then this same message comes back. Now I have verified that I can ping ServerName just fine, so the name resolution isn't actually the issue.
I have also added the lines to my squid.conf, which all the instructions I find online seem to indicate should solve the issue.
acl ServerName dstdomain DomainName always_direct allow ServerName
(NOTE: Names have been changed to protect the innocent)
I then also added:
acl MyDomain src 192.168.0.1/255.255.255.192 never_direct deny MyDomain
Same result (And there was some weird message from aclParseIpData warning me about my netmask making away part of my specified IP), which I thought was a very odd message indeed.
