Squid proxy and 1710

    Anyone setup a squid proxy with a 1700 series or compatible Cisco
    router before? We currently have a simple setup - our hosts have a
    default gateway to the inside interface; this works fine
    with no proxy (no ACL, restrictions of any kind with 1710) However,
    when we proxy a host to (Linux/Squid/WebSense filter) the
    browse capability stops. We can still ping the outside world but cannot
    see thru browser. I see there is a Cisco command for WebSense filter
    but am not quite sure how to implement or if this is the issue. BTW,
    If I pull the Cisco and put in a simple Dlink or Linksys everything
    works like it should. We would prefer to use the Cisco. Any ideas,
    thanks - Bill

    You'll need to provide a lot more info for anyone to provide any useful
    troubleshooting. For starters your router config and your squid.conf

    As a general rule all your hosts' browsers should be pointed to the IP
    and proper port on the box that squid is running which in turn should
    be pointed to your router as its gateway. The router should be
    configured to only accept traffic from the squid box so users can't
    bypass the proxy.

    thanks Brad - I can post the cisco config and squid config no problem
    but would like to ask one thing first. We would rather not force
    everyone to the proxy; allow some hosts to go directly outside thru the
    router while having the proxy in place for those proxied - therefore
    would this be possible? Remember, the low end routers work perfectly
    for this and I can't understand why. Thanks - Bill
