Squid (probably) weirdness does not allow some pages to display
I am experiencing a problem which I lack the knowledge to crack at this stage. I run a home server (2.6.28-19-server #64-Ubuntu SMP) which firewalls and proxies for my LAN (including 2 linux boxes, a vista box and a win7 box).
Most of the time this works well. Very occasionally we will run into a website which will not display at all on the LAN boxes.
Examples: for a long time I could hit the forums.egosoft.com site but not the egosoft.com site. Now my wife can't hit www.boden.co.uk. I'm pretty sure that the problem is in the Squid3 config. Isolation testing:
Run the vista box direct into the ADSL modem: get the website.
Hit the website using Lynx through SSH on the server box: get the website.
Try to get the site on a browser (have tested with IE8 and chrome) on any of the win boxes through the proxy - no joy. DNS error.
Firefox on Ubuntu desktop from the linux client boxes gives an error message about an unrecognised form of compression.
I can only assume that I've misconfigured the Squid3 proxy in some way - it works for 99% of sites but fails utterly on others.
Any advice please?
What exact Error display in case it wont open?
Sorry for delay, have been away.
Firefox error: Content encoding error. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.
This webpage is not available.
The webpage at http://www.boden.co.uk/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
More information on this error
Below is the original error message
Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error.
IE 8 error:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems
This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:
•Internet connectivity has been lost.
•The website is temporarily unavailable.
•The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
•The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
•There might be a typing error in the address.
•If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

It's problem may be DNS issue.Please configure your DNS properly.
Unlikely to be DNS as noted in OP.
I don't think DNS is it. Any other suggestions?
squid and boden
Did you ever get to the bottom of this?
I'm seeing exactly this error (pretty much same combo of machines also) same squid [style] setup same site, same error messages.
Can elobrate your problem , Which OS you are using.
Not quite sure which OS you want. In terms of my squid server it's on Debian (Lenny)
the clients & server are all as per the originators setup
No help seen yet...
Hopefully Ganesh has something better than "reconfigure your DNS" to offer you - I await his next pearl of wisdom.
