Okay, I will admit to it I am not a huge guru with linux, infact i am just very new to it. I have just installed my shiny copy of Red Hat 9.0 and like a kid on Christmas day went through it in Haste.

What I saw I liked, even the challenges from mounting a USB device.I sorted that out, got samba to run, with my winnt 4.0 Domain controller, but for the life of me, i cant get my Squid.conf file to work as a proxy.

Either it dies, and refuses to start squid, or my machines don't seem to pass the request to the upstream proxy. This is rather frustrating, I am not sure what its doing or why its doing it...

HELP !!!!!!!

Well first off, do 'netstat -a' and see if squid is running. I believe squid runs on default port of 3128. If it dies or refuses to restart then please post the error that it states so that we can help you better .

I know the proxy doesn't start because is loses its writes to the cache folders, so I recreated the squid cache folders with the "squid -z" and it created all the files, but the next time I let it boot up it forgets the settings, even after I did a chmod 777 on the files itself.

What I initially thought is that its running out of space so I have installed a second hard drive and am going to move the cache onto it. Hoping this may solve some problems.
