Squid is a FreeBSD 8.0-p2 i386 machine with 2G of ram; bge nic with
rxcsum and txcsum enabled.

I have an occasional issue that sometimes clients will receive a 'proxy
refusing connections' message (firefox is more straight forward with the
message than IE - but the network is mostly IE)

Instantly hitting F5 or refresh causes everything to return to normal
and the user goes on, it's a 'rare' thing that happens, but occasionally
it happens.

I don't see anything obvious in cache.log..

Where/How could I start to figure this out?

Our squid is an authenticated proxy.

We are also doing squidguard as redirect_program.

And we are using wpad autodiscovery to configure the proxy to everyone.

Thanks in advance.
