Darn, I hate to admit it but I am really stumped on this so here goes.
I have a LINUX 10.3 installation running most of the standard stuff which comes with it and squid 2.6 and apache 2.2.4
I have a mime type entry as follows
squid is running normally
root 4054 1 0 21:47 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/squid -sYD
and when I set up my browser with a http proxy of 192.168.1.5 port 3128 it works correctly and log internet access to the squid.log file but when I try to use an autoconfiguration script, procy.pac with entries as follows
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
if (host == "localhost" || isPlainHostName(host) ||
isInNet(host, "192.168.1.0", "255.255.255.0"))
return "PROXY proxy.lift.com.au:3128";
and my browser set to automatic proxy configuration script
Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that can't be found.
I am stumped, I'm sure I'm missing something pretty basic but I have really no idea what. port 3128 is open on my firewall.
