Starting Processes

Can someone help me out a little...

Newbie here....

I have a Linux proxy server running for my firm but the thing is the proxy process is killing me. First of all I always have to manually start it when I reboot(what file could I edit to auto start this process when the computer starts ??) it is under /usr/local/squid/bin/squid

Then the process keeps stopping and I constantly have to be re-starting the process... any ideas ???????

Finally I would like to know where I open up for or enable telnet access to my server ?????

Thank you very much My mighty lords... (the answers I have found in here are un-countable, VIVA LA FREE SOURCE !!!)

I found out that the log was getting too big for SQUID to run so I emptyed out the logs and now the process runs fine and doesn't die right away.

What is troubling me now is how do I make my Linux 7.1 run this process at startup and preferrably last ??? I tried "chkconfig --add squid" but I got: "squid doesn't support chkconfig" is there another way ????

To see what the current status is : "chkconfig --list |grep squid".
To start squid automatically in runlevel 3 : "chkconfig --level 3 squid on"
To see again what the current status is : "chkconfig --list |grep squid".

ps. telnet service on a server is not very recommended. You better use ssh with Putty as ssh client on a Window machine, or ssh itself on a Linux/Unix machine.

ps. Check out the /etc/inetd.conf file for enable telnet if you really want.

(If I remember correctly Red Hat 7.1 does not use xinetd yet, only later version of Red Hat).
