Re: Squid 1.1.16 boot error

Hmm. I doubt you should be getting these messages to stderr (which is the
implication). I presume you haven't set the locations for the logfiles
properly, or squid doesn't have the permissions to access those logfiles
under the userid it has been configured to run under.

Only one of the following diagnostic lines is actually an error message.

This isn't an error. FD13 refers to a file-descriptor which is being used to
communicate with the unlinkd program.

Good so far.

Boom. It tried to connect to port 8080 of the target server, and got
'connection refused' (or host unreachable, or network unreachable). Either
way, it couldn't connect to the parent address you gave it

Yes. Not an error, as I pointed out above.

No. I would say that either:
(a) the host you're trying to have squid connect to is down
(b) the server supposed to be running on that port isn't.
(c) you've got the wrong host address
(d) you've got the wrong port number
(e) there's a firewall in the way.

Pick one (or more)
