Hello to all,
Firstly, thank you everyone for excellent information which you have been posting over the past few months. They are truely helpful! I am new to squid and have a couple of quick and general questions before working myself up the ladder:
I am currently running squid on my laptop (redhat vs. 8.0). I have set http_port 80. I currently do not have a network. Is it still possible to configure squid and my webbrowser to perform caching as I am visiting web pages on my laptop?
I have already tried configuring my webbrowser after I followed the basic recommended changes on the squid.conf file. In my webbrowser (Mozilla or Netscape) I clicked on Edit --> preferences --> advanced --> proxies and changed http proxy to 192.168.0.1 and the port to 80. When I click ok and try to open a webpage, I get a "bad request: 400".
I am probably doing somthing totally wrong, hence I decided to ask you folks. I just want to know if I can run squid and cache in webpages on a stand alone prior to creating a network.
Thank you all!
