    squid 2.6 stable 13


    hi! I'm trying to setup squid 2.6 stable 13 on a fedora core 6 platform. i used fedora core's existing squid installation (i didn't undergo the download and compile processes). first, i only configured the port squid is going to use and the network that will be using squid.

    here's my added config:
    http_port 8080
    acl internal src 192.168.10.0/255.255.255.0
    http_access allow internal
    http_access deny all


    when i try to browse a site using a workstation using the proxy server i made, i just get a "Page cannot be displayed error". i checked the browser's status bar and it always tries to connect to the squid server.

    i used the same config (and added more) on squid 2.5 running on fedora core 4 and had no problems.

    i have also set selinux to be permissive and remove the selinux policy on squid.

    may i have some sample configurations or you might point out what i did wrong or things i may be missing. thanks...

    i already got it going. i just flushed my existing iptables rules. i had to make scripts to contain new iptables rules and run them during startup. and it worked fine. now my problem is NATting. here's what i did:

    iptables -F
    iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -o eth0 -s 192.168.5.0/24 -d 0/0 -j MASQUERADE
    iptables -A FORWARD -t filter -o eth0 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A FORWARD -t filter -i eth0 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT

    i had my ip forwading on but i get page cannot be displayed messages. i used this on fedora core 4. fedora 4 and 6 have the same 2.6 kernel so i think it should work on both.

    i'm using fedora core 6. thanks
