Hi there all!
I've just compiled/installed squid 1.1.17 and have configured it with the
"minimal configuration file" here below:

#squid.conf - a very basic config file for squid

#Turn logging to it's lowest level
debug_options ALL,1

#defines a group (or Access Control List) that includes all IP
acl all src

#allow all sites to use connect to us via HTTP
http_access allow all

#allow all sites to use us as a sibling
icp_access allow all

#test the following sites to check that we are connected

#run as the squid user
cache_effective_user squid squid
#otherwise, you can uncomment the below line and comment the one out.
# this will run as use "nobody" with the group "nogrtoup"
cache_effective_user nobody nogroup

Anytime I try with lynx to use squid (I set it into the lynx.cfg file) to
access to my own web server at the URL "" I get the same error page:

The requested URL could not be retrieved
* Invalid URL syntax

while in the log file I find the following message:


I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. But, what?

Many thanks in advance for any kind of hint.
