Another Q ... When I use a windows client to my squid proxy, squid seems to
dial up, even though it has the requested page(s) in the cache.
i.e. I use google a lot, and have it set as my default page in ie5.
When I start ie5, and watch the log, it dials up straight away, even though
I was just on google a few mins ago.
Is it dns thats causing the dialup ?
Should I do a local caching nameserver to solve this prob ?
