Squid proxy, what am I doing wrong

Hi all,

I've been using a squid proxy for the last couple of years to access the bbc iplayer though after some issues with the server I decided it was easier to rebuild it from scratch. Now everything works but squid is playing up and I can't work out from where.

I've followed this again:

https://www.linode.com/docs/networking/ … untu-12-04">https://www.linode.com/docs/networking/squid/squid-http-proxy-ubuntu-12-04

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 fresh installation.

I've got -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3128 -j ACCEPT in IPTABLES to let the port through

Though I have even disabled the firewall completely and it's the same result - I've also added my own IP address to the white list on failtoban as well

And I've added this to the squid.conf file:

acl client src # Home IP

http_access allow client

When I then use foxy proxy and I enter the server IP it will just say it cannot connect. If I use my FQDN then it seems to just hang rather than an outright fail.

I have looked into the access.log and it's not being touched at all. It's not been accessed since it was installed (permissions issue??)

Either way, I'm confused as I don't know where to look next. Does anyone have any ideas?
