Squid proxy - speedtest - latency error - slow internet when proxy settings enabled



  • Hi guys, this is my first time to post here. I really need your help.
    I configured pfsense 2.4.4 with squid and squidguard package installed.
    when I enable the proxy settings on my end user/ desktop the speedtest.net shows latency error, but when I disable the proxy settings there is no problem at all, I got 20Mbps down and 15Mbps upload.
    I think the squid has problem or I missed some configuration.. I also install and configure in virtualbox I got the same error.
    Help pls. Thanks



  • @mr-newbie
    Try using SpeedOf.me speed test.
    As for your config. no one has any clue unless you tell us how you
    configured it.



  • I think this is normal. Use Microsoft Edge or a browser that supports flash. Then go to http://legacy.speedtest.net/.

    The other option is to manually configure the specific PC you are testing from to bypass the proxy, unless it is setup in transparent mode. Then do the above.
