I am trying to install a Squid anonymous proxy on my home computer for a quick presentation tomorrow.
When I try to connect to it using Google Chrome, I get the following error code:

Error 130 (net:ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED)

I am able to see the Squid website from my computer however it gives an error message:

The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: /

    Invalid URL

Some aspect of the requested URL is incorrect.

Some possible problems are:

    Missing or incorrect access protocol (should be "http://" or similar)

    Missing hostname

    Illegal double-escape in the URL-Path

    Illegal character in hostname; underscores are not allowed.

Your cache administrator is root.

My conf file looks like:

#
# Recommended minimum configuration:
#
acl manager proto cache_object
#acl localhost src 127.0.0.1/32 ::1
#acl to_localhost dst 127.0.0.0/8 0.0.0.0/32 ::1

# Example rule allowing access from your local networks.

# should be allowed

#
# Recommended minimum Access Permission configuration:

#http_access allow manager localhost
#http_access deny manager

# Deny requests to certain unsafe ports
http_access deny !Safe_ports

# Deny CONNECT to other than secure SSL ports
http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports

# We strongly recommend the following be uncommented to protect innocent
# web applications running on the proxy server who think the only
# one who can access services on "localhost" is a local user
#http_access deny to_localhost

#
# INSERT YOUR OWN RULE(S) HERE TO ALLOW ACCESS FROM YOUR CLIENTS
#

# Example rule allowing access from your local networks.
# Adapt localnet in the ACL section to list your (internal) IP networks
# from where browsing should be allowed
#http_access allow localnet
#http_access allow localhost

# And finally deny all other access to this proxy
http_access allow all

# Squid normally listens to port 3128
http_port 3128

# We recommend you to use at least the following line.
hierarchy_stoplist cgi-bin ?

# Uncomment and adjust the following to add a disk cache directory.
#cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 100 16 256

# Leave coredumps in the first cache dir
coredump_dir /var/spool/squid

# Add any of your own refresh_pattern entries above these.

If you want to use squid in transparent proxying mode, you need to change the following line:

http_port 3128

to read:

http_port 3128 accel vhost allow-direct

For older versions of squid (I think before squid3), you can just write:

http_port 3128 transparent

  • tanx alot Khaled, more than 4 days i search about make squid transparent and all of websites and configuration that i tested is failed, its so simple solved just with added "accel vhost allow-direct" after port number. thanks again – Mehdi Yeganeh Sep 23 '16 at 11:39
