RE: [squid-users] offline_mode troubles

Thanks for the advice.

I'll try out the newer binary... I can live with pure 'offline_mode' without
the intermittent stuff for now, as long as I can figure out a good way to
allow a Sales person to switch their box from online to offline mode and
restart the squid service. My hunch is that this could be easily
accomplished with a simple batch file and 2 alternate squid.conf files.
Perhaps at a later time I might be interested in testing intermittent
interface check patches. Out of curiousity, what compiler is SquidNT
compiled with?

This is a very outdated binary build of SquidNT.
You can find the latest here:

At this moment SquidNT doesn't support the previous patch because there are
some problems to test the network interface status. If you can help in the
testing phase, I can try make the patch works.
