Hello

I am trying to allow my clients to access www.imdb.com using a squid proxy (mandrake 10 OS). I can get to main page alright then when I start to click on links at about the 4-5 link I click on I get access denied. If I close main window and reopen that main page (www.imbd.com) also now gets access denied. I can do this in any order of links and have had all the links I tried show up good at least once. In order to be allowed back to the site I clear the cache and can redo the same problem using different links.

I have increased cache size in the hopes that may have been the problem, but no luck there.

acl GOOD dst www.imdb.com
acl GOOD dst ia.imdb.com
acl GOOD dst i.imdb.com

Have you checked your access control settings against "the bible".  "You may need to set up the http_access option to allow requests from your IP addresses."  Here's the link:

This symptom is kinda classic of a process or system that is low on file descriptors.

We made adjustments to the file descriptors and the problem has went away.
Thanks for the advice.
