    Need help configuring squid


    I have 4 PCs at home and I'm running squid as a proxy on a laptop to speed up http. Following is my configuration:

    visible_hostname Vaio
    http_port 3128 accel
    cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 1000 16 256
    cache_access_log /var/log/squid/access.log
    acl intranet src 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
    http_access allow intranet
    forwarded_for deny all
    via deny all

    I have two questions.

    1. The above does not seem to be caching and instead sends request to websites each time.
    2. What must I add in this to allow other things like IRC, etc? Or do I need to run another proxy for those? Can I make it act as a proxy for *everything* (IRC, SSH, FTP, BitTorrent, etc etc)?

    P.S. I didn't try transparent proxy because I wanted to avoid messing with iptables. It's running on a laptop (with a dead video card) that I ssh into and didn't wanna risk locking myself out, if that makes sense. The firewall is disabled too.
