    help configure Squid Proxy


    I am a newb at Squid Proxy server. I have installed it through the apt-get command on my Debian machine. I then go into the .conf file and I am totally lost. This page is like a mile long and I cant seem to get it to work no matter what I do. I try to access the Proxy on another machine on my LAN and I keep getting "ACCESS DENIED"

    I have serached google for tutorials regarding this, I havent found anything. Can any one please list some detailed instructions? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    by default squid blocks everything. check your squid.conf for lines that start with:
    http_access

    there will probably be a line that says
    http_access deny all

    to just allow access change that to
    http_access allow all

    and restart squid. That should allow you to connect. probably not the most secure setup though so don't stop there. for a gui for squid I would try webmin.
