Squid Proxy-Caching = ???

Q: Squid Proxy-Caching = ???

Hey guys..

Just browsing the web on my laptop connecting wirelessly to my router in my apartment, when all of a sudden I get a login dialogue box called: "Squid Proxy-Caching web server".

I can't connect to anything because I don't even know that the hell this is.. Isit a virus??

How do I remove this thing?

Thanks guys,


Preferred Solution: Squid Proxy-Caching = ???

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Squid proxy-caching web server requires a username and password.

Sounds like you have installed something that requires this proxy server.

Let's have some real information about the environment.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

I share the same problem as the poster nagorimayank.

In the past I attended graduate school and had remote access to the university library. After graduation remote access privileges ended. However, the squid proxy cache problem continues. (It does not recognize my old username and password, as expected.)

Based on John's reply to the previous user here are my specs:

I am working off a Dell laptop that accesses the internet via AT&T cable. I use a Linksys Router SRX 200. My operating system is Windows XP Professional., and web browser is the most recent version of Firefox.

FYI, the site I was trying to get to was the worldbank at:


I hope I've provided all that you need to resolve this issue, but am happy to supply additional information as needed.

I keep getting a Authentication Required box popping up when I navigate to different web pages. The box says "The proxy proxy.uconn.edu:80 is requesting a username and password. The Site says "Squid proxy-caching web server" "

I certainly never set up a proxy on this computer, I know next to nothing about proxy's or how they work. The computer though did have several viruses until recently though, and I am wondering if this is part of one of those.... I cleaned the PC, virus scan cant find anything else, but this authernt box keeps popping up...

Anyone have an idea how I can get rid of it?

Hello ladies/gents, I've got a rather frustrating problem which I'm hoping somebody can help me with.

The Company which I work for has recently acquired a hosted web security solution, which acts as a web proxy amongst other things.

We have got a DNS CNAME setup which refers to one of our webservers as 'wpad', and when IE is configured to 'automatically detect settings' - wpad is accessed and the proxy settings are obtained from the wpad.dat file which lives on our webserver.

The wpad.dat file contains proxy exceptions and rules which are generated by the hosted web security system.

The hosted solution which we're using requires that all users login from a known IP address - which is fine for our office users, but is causing problems for remote users. The default behaviour of IE is that if WPAD is not reachable, then proxy settings will be ignored and the user will be allowed directly to the internet - but unfortunately the wpad file is being cached on the local laptops causing the users to be blocked from the internet (as they're not from a known IP).

I've written a .bat script which runs a simple del \wpad*.dat /s command which the users can use to clear the cached file - but I'd like to prevent IE from caching the file in the first place!

I found a Microsoft article here: How to disable automatic proxy caching in Internet Explorer which unfortunately doesn't work for us. I setup a test GP object and performed the change manually to the registry, neither had an ... Read more

I'm running a Squid proxy, version 2.6... For the most part we lock out entire internet access to everyone except for specific sites to be unblocked. Someone has asked us to unblock the Gasbuddy.com website however, gasbuddy has registered hundreds of .com's pointing to specific states (ie. coloradogasprices.com) each with gasprices.com in the URL.

Does someone out there know how to wildcard gasprices.com in the squid proxy ACL lists? What i'm trying to get to is when anyone goes to any domain that contains gasprices.com (ie. coloradogasprices.com or oregongasprices.com) it will go to that site. I've tried using the standard * as a wildcard and quite a few other things but I can't get squid to open the sites up--I have to enter them in manually.

Thank you!

I am looking to modify my existing Squid configuration and add a second port. One port should have one list of ACL's/rules and the other should have a completely seperate one. I can write the ACL's and such but I don't know how to configure squid to operate differently based on the port the request is coming in. I can redirect the traffic from the client to the proper port as well.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I have installed Squid 2.5 stable onto Windows, it's all up and running, however I need to know what line I can add to the squid.config file to:

a) block keywords e.g. game
b) deny access to a particular website e.g. miniclip.com

If possible please tell me exactly what code I need to use, any variables I need to change and where I need to add the new code.

Kind Regards


A:Squid on Windows

You need to create an ACL in the squid.conf file.

acl miniclip dstdomain .miniclip.com
http_access deny miniclip

^ The placement of that varies based on the rest of your .conf file.

a fair while ago I setup a transparent proxy server running Opensuse (think it was version 10.2), it worked perfectly, cached the http traffic and still allowed https, and other services to be accessed. However the drive in it died so its being setup again.

I've got squid running transparently just fine, but I can't get the other services to forward through IP tables.. I know i can't cache https - and nor do I want to. I thought from memory that I had the default option for the sections in iptables to "ACCEPT", and just had rules to redirect the http traffic to squid. However thats exactly what I've got now - and I can't access anything other than port 80.

WTF have I missed? - and before anyone says as much, I have googled it and i'm getting so many varied responses people telling saying it can't be done, others saying you have to add a rule for every other port (which I dont remember doing previously)..

I use WinXP, I am in a network and between me and internet there is a Red Hat server with squid as proxy. I can go in internet through the proxy but also I can go directly by settings this option in IExplorer or Mozilla. The big question is: when I go directly bypassing the proxy, are the logs saved and can anybody see which sites do I visit? Is there any way in which the admin can see the requests if I go directly? If it's possible, how can I know this? I have access to the server, I can play around but I'm not root.
Thanks anyway.

A:Bypass squid from a Windows station

Even though you are not using the features of the squid proxy, anytime you are directed through a firewall or server, your actions can be logged. It all depends how much the admin of the server has decided to implement.

Most admins are not scouring over logs to see where you are surfing. We look for anomalies and areas of bandwidth saturation. I wouldn't worry too much about it, unless you are trying to hide something specific from the admin.

And use the proxy if possible, it helps the Internet in general and should speed your access anyways.

Now when I use a search engine I am often redirected to junk or malware sites, where more malware is loaded, which I then remove, and the cycle repeats.

Dear Friends,

I am in new in this forum. I have one doubt in squid proxy.

I am using Windows Squid Proxy in one Windows XP SP3 machine. and also i have 30 nos of Windows XP Machine. I want block internet using only hostname(computer name) not ip address or mac address or username.

Is this possible to block internet using hostname.

Thank U

A:Internet Block By hostname using Squid

I don't know is Squid can block by that. I'd suggest using static IP's or DHCP reservations on your network and then you can block by IP address which would do the same thing as blocking by hostname since the IP of the host wouldn't change. If you're running a domain, you can then use group policy to prevent users from changing their IP manually.

For the last several weeks it seems to take forever for a web page to open up. I use firefox and down at bottom of screen just above taskbar there is another bar and when you put a url in the address bar up on top well in this bar above the task bar it says searching for and while it says this it shows that other urls are being searched at the same time. Way to the right of this is the little box with the green marks that show how fast it is loading. Well it takes forever to load a web page. For example the last time i just searched for a web page these came up---looking up wrapper. ign.com, looking up atax.ign.com, looking up ads.ign. com. I put one of these into google and there is something about squid analysis report generator which apparently tells the whole world where i go on the web. How did i get this and how do i get rid of it. Thanks. ANy help appreciated. None of this shows up with adaware or any of antivirus programs i use. Again thanks.

I just have a question about this. I got a vista home premium 32-bit gateway laptop. And I see the option to delete DNS Cache in CCleaner. All I'm curious about is, what is that really going to do? Anything major besides make my pages load .2 seconds slower?

A:DNS Caching

In general, it's not going to do anything other than force the system to go out and repopulate the cache as you surf the web.

Also, if the DNS Cache is "poisoned" it can prevent you from reaching a website that you want to go to.

Hi all,

When you load a webpage, the files (images, ...) that the webpage contains will be downloaded. If the server hosting the webpage goes down while the files are being downloaded, then IE's Temporary Internet Files will contain partially downloaded files. When the server is back up and running, and you refresh the page, the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading, and will never be downloaded again. The webpage will never display the files that were partially downloaded, and the only way to fix this is to delete the Temporary Internet Files.

Other browsers do not have this problem. It looks like IE does not compare the file size in the Cache, to the file size on the server, but only compares the date, which is the same.

How to reproduce the problem (for developers):
-create a webpage that contains a big file (jpg, swf, or any file).
-on a client computer, clear the Temporary Internet Files, then start loading the page.
-before the file has time to finish downloading, stop and start the web server.
-look inside the Temporary Internet Files, and you will see a partially downloaded file.
-refresh the page, and the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading.

Note: I tried many different file headers, but it looks like whatever header you set for the file, even "no caching ..." headers, the problem always happens.

With explorer. Copy a large, say 700mb file from folder a to b on a regular HDD, should take 10-15 secs right. If you watch resmon, disk activity, you will see write activity to the destination folder for almost a full minute afterwards. Anyone know what's going on here? I don't have restore (previous versions of files) enabled either.

So, it's time I asked a question. I've got this awesome little 7eeePC you've probably read about as I babble on about it like a schoolgirl in many of my posts and I'd like to show of it's WEI score to convince folks it's not quite as castrated as some have insinuated. Only, the machine will not complete system assessment complaining about write caching not being enabled. I try to enable it but

A:Write Caching

You could try to update the mainboard bios if there's a new version available. It won't definitely fix it to be able, but there is a decent chance. Also, the controller drivers should be updated to latest, if they are not already.

I have a company network with 2 internal dns servers on and
Using DHCP.

2 problem Win7 clients.

When I run ipconfig /all on both it shows both DNS servers as expected 

We have a corporate server on AWS and it's IP address changed on Monday during a restart.
Shouldn't have but it did, so we are stuck with a new public facing DNS name for that server, so we updated the friendly CNAME record to point to the new address.

18 of our 20 internal clients, including Win7, 8 and 10 clients and Mac and Linux clients are all finding the corporate server now using the original friendly name.

But 2 Win7 clients are still not getting there.

On both, if we run
nslookup <friendly.domname.com>

It returns the name of of our primary internal DNS server (as nameserver) and the NEW IP address of the host address

So it seems that the client's base OS DNS lookup returns the correct IP.

If I paste that IP into either chrome or Internet Explorer, I get the correct website.

However, if I enter <friendly.domname.com> into either browser (and Firefox) a different website appears.

I can in Chrome test the dns resolver using chrome://net-internals/#dns which returns a list of addresses in chromes internal cache.
And I can flush that browser dns cache by clicking the "clear host cache" button

If I then try the same <friendly.domname.com> again, the cache list is re-populated with a bunch of urls acce... Read more

I have windows Vista home basic 32 bit operating system. Recently i installed IE9 ans now if i open a website after clearing cache it gives HTTP code 200 on fidddler then on second session it gives 304 for most of the request . My temporary internet file setting is "Automatic". I checked on temporary internet files and nothing is seen there. If i do the same in firefox 4 then on second request it doesnt give 304 and content is served from cache and i am able to see the content there in firefox cache.
1). In case of IE9 if content is not there in cache then how it is giving HTTP response code 304 (not modified)
2). Is there any other cache other than disc cache if yes then how can i see the content of that cache.

A:caching problem in IE9

I recently installed IE9 on my Windows vista home 32 bit. Whenever I open a website after clearing browser cache then on fiddler first time it gives HTTP code 200 for all requests. When i check on browser cache all gif, jpeg, js are cached and expiry time is 1 month. But when i open the same page it gives HTTP Status code 304 for gif, jpeg and js.
Not able to figure it out why it is not picking the content fron the browser cache. Temporary Internet Files setting in set to "Automatic".

We use a WPAD file hosted on a Websense appliance and use IE11 on Windows 7 x64.

We are seeing some performance issues with the Websense delivery of WPAD and have discovered that every computer is making a large amount of calls to the websense appliance to retrieve WPAD.dat. (Up to 1000 per machine in some cases)

We have worked with Websense and found that they were returning a 'no-cache' option in the WPAD response header. Via a patch we have had this removed.
However I still can't find a cached WPAD file on my machine that I am using for testing and have checked all the registry entries I can think of related to caching.
Does anyone have any ideas?

For reference, the WPAD.dat is (edited of course):
// Start of Script
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
// Convert everything to lower case
var lhost = host.toLowerCase();
host = lhost;
//Local Networking Match
if (isPlainHostName(host) ||
shExpMatch(host, "localhost.*") ||
shExpMatch(host, "*.ourdomain.net") ||
shExpMatch(host, "*.local") ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), "", "") ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), "", "") ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), "", "") ||
isInNet(dnsResolve(host), "", ""))

Guys, hoping someone can help me out...

I'm experiencing a problem when I'm browsing, in that there are Mbs & Mbs being dumped into my temporary folders.

I normally use IE8, but have also used Google Chrome and they both react in the same manner.

Approx 10 mins of browsing, plus a round of Tiger Woods Online can see as much as 150 Mbs be left in either the Temporary Internet Folder or Internet Cache (depending on the Browser used).

I have to run CCleaner on a regular basis, to stop slowdown due to this.

Has anyne else seen this, or can anyone assist in rectifying?

Thanks in advance.

A:Caching Issue

There is an Advanced>>Security option under IE Tools>>Internet Options to Empty the Temporary Internet Files folder when closing the browser. Alternatively, you can reduce the space allocation for the folder under General>>Browsing History>>Settings.

Hi guys, my USB HDD started showing the 'delayed write failure' pop-ups so I changed the properties to 'Optimize for performance' and enabled write caching (previously it was set to 'optimize for quick removal').

Now the HDD wont show up in any PC, not in explorer / disk management ......i have rebooted, unplugged and waited, opened the caddy disconnected HDD and put together again but nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, there is about 250GB of stuff on it lol.

I have all my external drives set to "quick removal" option, so I don't have to use the "safe-removal" option.

On my internal drives, I have it set to "Enable write caching."

It says that a power outage could cause data loss.
Since I always use the "sleep" option, is this option safe?




Hello Paul,

Unless you have power outages often, then I wouldn't worry about it set like that.

Ok, so my hard drive in ACHI mode does not allow me to enable write caching but in compatibility mode it does.

Should I enable write caching?

Also this whole thing about memory loss is bugging me on what they are talking about. I have a laptop with a battery and mostly has power. But what if power were to cut off or it gets somehow unpluged, will my HD be corrupt? or would that "Word" document I was working on that was not saved be gone, everything else will be fine?


A:Write caching

You can read this tutorial from Vistax64 on it. Basically, it's not recommended for laptops without a UPS. I believe if the power were to go out, only the temp. cache would be lost, so like your word document you were working on might be lost if it were to go out.
Hard drive speed boosts - Vista Forums
Also a tut on how to enable it with AHCI on, but I don't think it was relevant if you read all the comments in the tutorial.

But be notified that having it enabled has caused many to have a lower reported WEI score.

I am about to buy my SSD, but I don't know whether I can use the Crucial M4 64GB for caching, next to using it for my complete OS and a game (maybe two, 7 GB average). Because what I would like to do, is put my OS on it (Win7 64-bit) and the game. And then use (a part of) the space left (around 30GB, reserving 27GB for the OS and 3~4GB for the game) for Caching.

Will this work? Or can I only use the Intel SSD Caching on a empty SSD?

P.S. Someone told me I could only use ~20GB or 60GB for SRT Caching, I find this hard to believe, is it true?
P.P.S. Is it true I ought to put the SRT Caching to 64GB? Or would there actually be a difference if I would put my OS and Call of Duty 4 directly on my SSD?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:SSD SRT caching question

hmm; Personally I've never seen CACHING to be configurable.

Placing the pagefile.sys entirely on an SSD would seem doable . . .
