Unhappy Unable to open some sites using Squid


There are 2 squid(2.5.STABLE12 )servers with identical config but on different Servers. One is running on RHEL 4 machine and other is running on FreeBSD 6.3.

We are facing two problems:

1. When browsing Internet through Squid (RHEL 4), few websites are not opening, browser keep "Transferring data from" or "Read" in status bar and display nothing, for example one of such website is
On the other hand with same squid.conf file, all sites are opening fine using Squid of FreeBSD Server.

2. While downloading data (say 100 MB) from net, oftenly speed degrade rapidly and download get stalled or continue with very poor speed. We didnt have any dealy pools or any such restrictions but facing the same problem using both squid servers. If bypass squid, download complete fine.

Here is squid.conf from FreeBSD machine (though both are identical except paths):

http_port 3128
