Squid proxy, what am I doing wrong
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:
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 188.8.131.52 # 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?
