we can't really tell if there is a problem in your squid.conf without looking at it... please post it minus the comments with something like:
Code:
cat /etc/squid/squid.conf | grep -v ^# | grep -v ^$
what error messages do the clients get on their browsers when this happens?? what do the squid logs show when this happens?? how many interfaces are on your squid server?? the more details you can provide about your setup and the problem the better your chances of getting a useful reply...

Not really a Linux-Security issue, moving this thread to the Linux-Networking forum to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

The dnsserver returned:

This means that:

The cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL.
Check if the address is correct.

ok so blatantly it's a DNS issue... can you resolve jobs.rediff.com on you squid box?

and if you're asked to post your squid.conf please post it. you've ben given a command above to strip out comments, which will greatly reduce it in size at any rate.

yeah, it does sound like a DNS issue...

is this proxy running in transparent mode?? i ask because unless it is, then the DNS lookups are done by the proxy itself - not the clients...
