I am setting up a squid proxy server (NOVM-1.1.20) on a RedHat 4.2
Linux server
But I have encountered a problem with ftpget i can't explain.
It takes minute's to get a directory listing on the clients webbrowser
(Netscape 4.04 Linux) screen.
Also when retrieving a 1K file it takes minutes to get the data to
the browser.
A FTP session bypassing the squid proxy shows the directory contents
almost immediately and transfering the data takes not even a second.

It looks like that the data is send to the client only after a timeout
occcurs in ftpget.

Anyone ever encountered the same problem and knows a cure for it?
