    I have installed debian to run Squid cache as a caching proxy.
    Ive been bashing away now for 2 days and i have managed to install squid (i first tried manually, but that did not work so i used synaptic software packager to install it (from Administration menu)
    That went well, thereafter i installed webamin to work with squid in a GUI

    I have managed to start squid and added my range of IP addresses to the ACL list ( as mentioned here: )
    I have added the proxy restriction too.

    Now, i tried to test it.
    I opened Iceweasel Web browser (on the same machine) and setit to use the Proxy server: localhost and port:3128
    That works fine.

    But when i try to change the proxy setting to my machines ip (where squid is installed) :
    Proxy server: and port:3128
    That does not work.
    Am i missing something, please help
    I then tried to set another windows PC on the network to:
    Proxy server: and port:3128
    That also does not work.

    I also edited the conf file to http_access allow all, but i do not know if i have doen it correctly, but maybe there is another problem?

    I would really appreciate your comments and help
    Thank you in advance
