Problems with Squid and Windows
Posted on 2002-06-17
Hi, I have this problem:
I have a linux box (red hat 7.2) as a gateway. It has squid, iptables and named installed.
From another linux box I can browse the Internet using Konqueror. The performance is good and the connection is reliable.
From a third computer with windows 2000 and using Internet Explorer I can do some browsing but the performance is bad and eventually the connection is broken or lost. I tried from another windows 2000 computer but the result is the same.
While this is happening at the windows workstations, I go back to the linux workstation and do more browsing without problem.
Both Konqueror and IExplorer are configured to use proxy. Also both workstations are pointing the gateway linux box as their primary DNS and primary gateway.
