Thanks! I got your point. I have one more doubt, my institution proxy needs
authentication. When I configured my browser with squid proxy, it was asking me for
uname and password. when I enter my institution username and password it is not
accepting. When I saw in FAQ it shows how to authenticate for squid, now I have to
forward to other other proxy so how can I resolve this? ( means how my insti proxy
resolves the authentication when the request is coming from squid)?
