[squid-users] Config Analysis for VPN Access

Hi Squid Users / Admins,

Below is my squid.conf of 3.1.23 running on openSuSe 11.4 32-bit using
transparent mode and Shoreline Firewall.
The server controls five networks, four of them through VPNs.

- Failure to access Internet on VPNs unless proxy settings are added
- Failure to reach DNS and HQ public IP Address
- Some "admin" IP addresses are randomly (time) blocked from accessing
the Internet

Where could we be going wrong? How can the set-up be improved?

## Start squid.conf
