I like bananas. What's wrong with bananas may I ask? Do you have a problem
with that?


Simple. Don't use squid. This is because realaudio uses its own proxying
"protocol" whereas squid is completely based around HTTP.

Look at under the section "firewalls".

And before you ask :-), you can't cache RealAudio as there isn't a way to
detect whether somethings a stream or a file, and you do _not_ want to try
and cache a stream!
