I'm trying to set up a transparent squid proxy on my linux router and run into the following problem:
The Squid proxy seems to run fine. If I configure my IE to use the proxy to access the internet everything works fine.
But when I forward traffic to port 80 to the proxy-port on the gateway machine and try to access the Internet as if there were no proxy, squid gives me the following error:
While trying to retrieve the URL: /
The following error was encountered:
Some aspect of the requested URL is incorrect. Possible problems:
Missing or incorrect access protocol (should be `http://
'' or similar)
Illegal double-escape in the URL-Path
Illegal character in hostname; underscores are not allowed
at least the portredirection seems to work
Any hints? Thanx in advance, Steave.
BTW using opera doesn't change anything.
