Squid proxy/cache on a dail-up internet connection

Hi All,
I am trying to use the squid proxy/cache on a dail up internet connection. The problem that I am having is that Squid does not detect the ppp0 interface that gets created when I dail in. As a result I cannot browse through the Squid proxy.

To get the Squid to detect my I have to restart the Squid, after I dail in and the ppp0 interface is created. My question is how do I fix this problem without having to restart squid ? On a dailup connection having the squid cache speeds up things.

The config of my system: Suse Linux 8.1, Ethernet Card( eth0 -unused, has a static IP address), an externel serial modem ( ppp0 when I dail in, dhcp ip address). I am using Squid 2.5.

squid is really not very good for dialup.

you can restart it in your ppp scripts but you should check this out. It's made for dialup
