I have installed squid on my server the thing i've came across is the slow response of squid once if I open a site it takes time to resolve and established the connection and after that it works fine but why it take so much time when a site is opened.
however i've installed name server on the system for dns caching.
What does your /usr/local/squid/var/log/access show whilst the site is being requested? Is the object correctly cached? And what kind of delay are we talking about here? The faster your disks are, preferably SCSI drives in a RAID array, the more Squid likes it.
i have no problem for my setup. been using it for about a year. u need to check ur squid and iptables rules. but then i am no squid or iptables guru. don;t know how to point u to the exact point of problem.
I have recently had this problem as well. I am sure that you have figured out what was wrong by now, but it seems like there are a lot of people looking for the answer but not finding it. There is a delay sometimes 10 seconds, once a page loads, other pages from that site load quicky. This is a DNS problem. In your squid.conf modify this line:
dns_nameservers xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
Once this line points to your DNS servers your problem should be resolved.
