Hello all

we installed squid proxy and it's working fine but we have a problem when accessing a web page on port 8888

we get the following error on the client

While trying to retrieve the URL:
The following error was encountered:
•      Connection Failed
The system returned:
    (13) Permission denied
The remote host or network may be down. Please try the request again.

Accessing directly the page is ok.

    Is Your squid run in transparent mode? The host may have redirected connections to 8888 back to local squid.
    No, then edit squid.conf and add
    acl Safe_ports port 8888

    or, enable NAT in your linux box.

    then any connection to a non standard port (port 80) still will be able to succed but not monitored nor accelerated by squid.

    Hi all

    You squid server is in the LAN.
    There is a firewall/NAT to go to internet.

    Did you enable the NAT for port 8888 to internet at the firewall level?
    Did you block the port 8888 at the firewall level?
    Mind tell us, which line (squid.conf) did you edit to startup the squid proxy?
