This is my first shot at a proxy server. I have, from ports, got squid and DG running. I point my local browser at the ip of the box ( and this is what I get for every site I try to browse.

This is the most painful thing I have done. :)

I am using the out of the box config for both.

Surely, I am doing something wrong. I have read all afternoon and have not found anything conclusive. I am assuming it is something trivial that I have no idea about.

This is what I get:

The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://my.yahoo.com/

The following error was encountered:

* Access Denied.

Ok Elmore, got it. What do I need to do to allow my local webserver? You know, what is in my /etc/hosts file.

Is that where this would come into play:

acl our_networks src
http_access allow our_networks

I guess I would just do ??
