Squid proxy server--- Please set 'visible_hostname'


Dear all,

My friend install the Redhat 9.0 for me 2 years ago.
It is very good OS. I use the HTTP, Email , FTP server. I want to activate the Proxy server : Squid 2.5 , I find some problem :
--------------------------------------

Initializing the Squid cache with the command squid -f /etc/squid/squid.conf -z ..


FATAL: Could not determine fully qualified hostname. Please set 'visible_hostname'

Squid Cache (Version 2.5.STABLE1): Terminated abnormally.
CPU Usage: 0.010 seconds = 0.010 user + 0.000 sys
Maximum Resident Size: 0 KB
Page faults with physical i/o: 395


--------------------------------------
Pls let me know how to determine fully qualified hostname / set 'visible_hostname'?
And which file should I need to modify ?

Thanks !!

Terry

in your squid.conf (/etc/squid/squid.conf for me..) add the line:
visible_hostname yourname@yourdomanin.org
