I've just started looking at using Squid for a project and can't seem to see an easy way of disabling the Squid error pages (e.g. "Name Error: The domain name does not exist"). We use a custom browser which handles that scenario in our way, so the Squid error pages are overriding our custom logic.

Is it possible to set them too 'off'? I've been through the .conf and I've found where the error pages are stored, but no real options to disable them.

Thanks, I've actually discovered that the error pages can't be turned off, but I'll have a look to see if ICAP can help solve our issue. –  Nicholas Smith Oct 3 '11 at 12:26
I'm also interested how you turned off :) Can you tell me please? –  mazgalici Oct 3 '11 at 12:33
Well there's no actual way to turn them off, as once Squid has been contacted it has to send a response. The only way it seems to do it is create custom error pages using their templates and go that way. –  Nicholas Smith Oct 3 '11 at 12:41
