Q: Using Squid on a firewall-Host?

Hi all,

I have heard that people replaced their http-gw of the
TIS-Firewall-Toolkit with squid. Is it sensible to use squid on a
firewall machine as a proxy? Can I use squid to forward http and ftp
requests both ways through the firewall it is running on?

I installed squid, and the only thing that is working right from the
start is that I can access outside Web-pages from inside our firewall.

But when I try to access our own Web-Pages I get the message that the
URL is wrong.

Is there an example squid.conf for this sort of setup (http,ftp)?
- The one provided with the distribution seems to miss out this
scenario. -

Thank you very much for any ideas!
