can not connect to squid cache manager via webmin anymore

From:¬_ lovswr1 <>
Subject:¬_ [squid-users] can not connect to cache manager
Date:¬_ 12 Nov 2003 07:12:01 -0500
Hello, I am very new to squid & Linux in general.¬_ This past weekend I
got a very simple squid to work & I was also able to connect to cache
manager that was on the same RH9 box.¬_ When I attempted to add my other
subnetwork ( was working O.K.) I could not
connect to cache manager anymore.¬_ I deleted all of the changes (I
think), but I still can not connect.¬_ I have read about how to do this,
but alas, there must be something that I don't understand/have right.

this is the error message I get when I connect to


(matrix1 = my localhost)

Cache Manager Error

connect: (111) Connection refused

Generated Thu, 13 Nov 2003 01:19:04 GMT, by cachemgr.cgi/2.5.STABLE1@localhost

This is my squid.conf

#Recommended minimum configuration:
acl all src
acl manager proto cache_object
acl localhost src
acl to_localhost dst
acl SSL_ports port 443 563
acl Safe_ports port 80
acl Safe_ports port 21
acl Safe_ports port 443 563
acl Safe_ports port 70
acl Safe_ports port 210
acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535
acl Safe_ports port 280
acl Safe_ports port 488
acl Safe_ports port 591
acl Safe_ports port 777
acl pc2 src
acl freebsd src

#Recommended minimum configuration:
# Only allow cachemgr access from localhost
http_access allow manager localhost
http_access allow manager to_localhost
http_access deny manager
http_access deny !Safe_ports
http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports
http_access allow localhost
# Deny requests to unknown ports
http_access allow freebsd
http_access allow pc2

If you have your squid server on your firewall you should set you Proxy address to keep others from wasting your resources and keep other from listening on your port, I used the as my Webmin local address and port 3128.

Then change your proxy restriction from (allow manager localhost) to (allow manager ďmyaddressĒ)

myaddress should be what ever you have for your local address. In your case

acl myaddress src

Then when you click on Cache Manager Statistics and it asks for an address make that what you address to the squid server.

This should help.
