Hi Frank

We are using both squid and http-gw on our firewall. Squid is
providing the cahcing services while http-gw provides the
forwarding or our internal www servers to external sites.

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

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!
