Thanks to the group to pointing me at the auto-proxy configuration..I'm
kinda part-timing it on the Squid stuff here at work, so I don't always know
all the ins and outs..Thanks again..
As a follow-up to that though, what have you people noticed for timeouts
before your client goes to DIRECT if the cache is down..It took my windows
98 machine around 15-20 linux box was immediate..both were
running Netscape..Is this a configurable option (the timeout) in Windows?
