[squid-users] RE: Squid Accelerator and SSL, Unsupported method "L"

Setting up Squid3.0 as an accelerator that needs to handle SSL.

As you recommended Henrik:
Un-encrypted my key. Modified key and cert permissions.
No longer get FATAL: Bungled squid.conf error. ! Good.

For testing running Squid on port 9999
That works fine.

But when I attempt to access https://.......:9999
I get nothing.

The cache log shows:

2004/02/13 10:36:37| clientProcessRequest: Invalid Request
2004/02/13 10:36:46| parseHttpRequest: Requestheader contains NULL characters
2004/02/13 10:36:46| clientParseRequestMethod: Unsupported method 'L' <----Bad!
2004/02/13 10:36:46| clientProcessRequest: Invalid Request

Appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you,
John Kent

This generates an encryted RSA key of 1024 bits. Squid can not load
encrypted RSA keys unless you start it with the -N option. Recommend to
decrypt the key unless you actually want to have to enter the encryption
key manually each time Squid is restarted.

This generates the certificate.

The error indiates that /users/webuser/squid3.0/conf/ssl.crt/webcache2.crt
does not exists, or maybe that Squid does not have permission to enter the

Maybe more information is given if you start Squid with the -X flag.
