I have just installed Squid on my Ubuntu 11.04 system by entering
sudo apt-get install squid
I then edited /etc/squid/squid.conf and added
acl squid_network src 10.0.2.0/24 http_access allow squid_network http_access allow all
acl purge method PURGE acl CONNECT method CONNECT
I then went into Firefox, chose Edit:Preferences:Network:Settings
and made the following changes.
Manual proxy configuration HTTP Proxy 10.0.2.2 Port 3128 Use the proxy server for all protocols No Proxy for localhost:127.0.0.1
I then went to the terminal and entered
sudo service squid restart
which resulted in
squid start/running, process 3309
Now, when I go to FireFox and click on home to go to http://start.ubuntu.com/11.04/Google/?sourceid=hp
The connection has timed out The server at start.ubuntu.com is taking too long to respond. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
I do not have this problem if I just use the system proxy settings.
Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated,
