Hello Mario,

Are you trying to setup Squid on the WinGate side or the remote side of your dial-up link. We have customers who run WinGate on their LAN and connect to us over a dial-up link. So to improve their performance we remove the standard http mapping from WinGate and add a custom one that maps the proxy machines port 80 to therefore forcing all the LAN requests to go through Squid at our end.

Now, what would be nice would be to have squid on a box on the client side of the connection. However if you were going to put a unix type machine on their end of the connection, you may as well use the same box as the proxy for other services as well and kick WinGate into touch.

Hi Squiders!
  I was wondering if anyone that uses squid has ever tried to use with
WinGate. For those who does not know WinGate is a proxy/socks software
that runs in Win95/NT and allow multiple machines to access the Net using
the WinGate as Proxy.
  Well since I run squid here would be great if there is way to integrate
those products in the same way that I can configure a child proxy..

PS.I am not asking for winGate support here. I would like to know if there
are any tips or caveats with it..
