RE: [squid-users] Unable to access a website through Suse/Squid.

I did the command you mentioned and it didn't seem to make a difference.
Is there anything special I need to do after running the command.

Also, when running ethereal it doesn't seem to be capturing web traffic,
catching lots of ARP, but nothing web related. When running on Windows
behind the SUSE box I can capture web traffic, is there something
obvious I am missing here?

The simplest way to test if it's window scaling biting the host (or to
be correct it's firewall) is to disable window scaling.

echo 0 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling

The sysctls have changed somewhat since the article was written
many years ago.
