Hi Anthony,

good point. I have been trying to get http-gw running, but I had the
same problem I asked about on the squid mailing list. Should I go back
and try fix the problem with the Tis-toolkit, and forget about Squid for
a firewall-proxy-software?

What you are saying is: DO NOT RUN SQUID ON A FIREWALL!

Do I understand this correctly?
