Hmm, one of our clients experienced troubles doing SSL over squid
(with MSIE3.0c? WIN) while others accessed the same site (trough the
same set of squids) using Netscape 3.01. I had'nt seen the MSIE configuration
(maybe there is something not straighforward in the proxy setup?),
but the problem seems browser specific, not server dependent.
Or this is an other problem?

Maybe they mean lower port number to use!?
