hello to all... I've been using Microsoft Proxy Server on Windows NT for a
while and it is not that bad. The only real problem I found with it is that
you cannot access-control the WinSocks proxy with ip's... it's based on
Users..! I feel squid can correct that, but i must say that I would like
to be able to have squid Autodial on demand during certain working hours.
So, I downloaded SquidNT from this link :
http://www.serassio.it/download/squid-2.3.STABLE5-NT-bin-DELAYP.zip>http My
question is : Is it possible to configure squid to dial on demand...? and
how.... We have an isp that we use the modem to connect to and we must use
their Proxy Server. I went through so much to get squid to use their proxy
as cache_access parent and the dns must be a nightmare for dial-ups. I used
never_direct to divert all requests to the isp's Proxy Server and I'm not
sure if the cache on our server is ever used... is it..?
