One other thing I wanted to point out was about accessing cache. Please look
at the following messages to the same site from 2 different machines.
950968381.349 1293 127.0.0.1 TCP_MISS/200 4390 GET http://www.squid-cache.org/ root DIRECT/www.squid-cache.org text/html

What the TCP_MISS and TCP_MEM_HIT flags? For the NT machine, the page is instantly
delivered, but for Linux Squid fetches the page. Both the machines are pointing to
the same port on the Linux box.
