Smoothwall MSN issue

I just set up a smoothwall firewall for our network and everything works great except that when you go to MSN on internet explorer it says "Whoops! We can't show you this right now.  We'll get it fixed soon."  I don't know which setting to change to make it work properly.  At one point I noticed the time was off in the smoothwall but that has been updated to the correct time and date.  Does anyone have an idea about this issue?

Hi chrissickels,

Open the include.acl file located at /var/smoothwall/proxy/advanced/acls in your favorite editor.  Drop in the following lines at the bottom (and after any other acls that may already be in the file):

#fix for t.msn.com chunked
acl chunked dstdomain .t.msn.com
header_access Accept-Encoding deny chunked
#fix for t.msn.com chunked

Open in new window

Restart the advanced proxy and you’re good to go! Make sure you put your acl mods in the include.acl file only.

The squid.conf file and other acl files are managed by the web interface and will be overwritten the next time you “save” from the smoothwall web interface.
