just delete the file, it's just a vi lock file by the look of it. so yeah you have a duff line in the config file, no : should be there. you do realise that you don't need squid if you want the box to be a "router"? routing and proxying are very different things...

Smile Dear Squid is very nice thing.

Dear

i recommended to use squid. as it is very nice caching server.
and you can control all things.
mainly Bandwidth control, which i think is more important thing foryou as you are running cyber cafe.

pl. use transperant proxy which give you very nice facility in cyber cafe environment.

Thanks.
with warm Regards,
Ashish Barot.

when ask ask clearly:)

Dear Sachin

I know that what you want to ask but it was a difficult one for The RHCE guy to answer thats not his mistake because when you know a lot you need a clear question what you are asking any way.

I think that you have Linux server in your cafe and you need you users to use your Proxy server because you have less bandwidth and you need some good speed in your cafe. if this is the question you want to ask then let me know I will help you out to configure your squid as transparent server. and do check if you can configure the DHCP server.

thanks

this question was so simple to answer. but the thing is that nobody answer me in a clear manner expect ashih and acid kewpie.
