Squid does save us significant amounts of bandwidth (35-45% byte hit,
1.5-2 GB save, according to calamaris report). My boss know this but my
boss hates complaints! ;-)

Currently, we already tell user to set their proxy setting manually but I
think not much user follow. Once they got the problem, they disable the
setting and never enable it. :)

For now, they still be able to disable the proxy if they feel that it was
the proxy that cause the problem. But if we implement a transparent proxy,
user will have no way to disable it and if there is a problem, they will
blame at us instead. :)

Since this is the only error that I got several hundred reports from
in-house user when we experiment with the transparent proxy in our office.
I think that if the problem solved, everyone will happy. I'm sure that we
would save a lot more bandwidth if transparent proxy is implement in our

Thanks for your help,
