Squid Server forwarding requests


Hi All,

I have installed squid server and it seems to be working okish.

I am stuck on couple of issues which looks easy to configure for a Linux guru please find below the issues:

1.I have installed webmin and can access web min from my linux box and any other machine on the network. But as soon as I put the proxy setting in my browser I cannot access webmin.

2. Our company has a datacentre where few servers which is on another network. Few of our sites are used in intranet and are hosted at the datacentre. Whe I try to access them through squid proxy server I get DNS fail error. I can ping the hosting servers from the linux squid box with the name and the ip address.

Any help is appreaciated as I am a newbie to Linux and a big fan too.

Thanks in advance.

Aash.

Hi,

The Q1 looks like a FireWall problem, have you open the 10000 port ??

For the rest, I need more information from you

Cheers

Have you access to root account ?
If so, try something like :
Quote:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -i eth0 --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT
in this manner, you accept all tcp traffic to the port 10000 (webmin port)
Be carefull, at the next reboot, your new rule will vanish.
If you don't have access or don't want to, you can try through webmin/network/linux firewall/ add new rule.

Cheers

Hi,

Thanks for your help.

I tried that command of adding port 10000 but that did not work.

Any other ideas ?

Thanks,

Aash.
