Stopping squid: 2008/10/23 18:35:11| Failed to acquire SSL certificate '(null)': error:0200100E:system library:fopen:Bad address

Have a look at the https_port directive - http://www.visolve.com/squid/squid30/network.php#https_port

You need to create an ssl certificate.

You want to create 10 proxies? Or 10 pcs are going to be using 1 proxy?

i want to create 10 individual proxies - each with a unique outgoing ip address

i've gotten that far already, everything appears to work just fine however when stopping the service i get that warning / error (it still stops)
