Squid, squidguard and Internet Explorer



  • I just put together my first pfsense router and have been testing it.  The routing and VPN have been working fine, so I installed squid and squidguard for a transparent proxy / content filter.  With those running, internet explorer will continuously load at some sites, rendering it unresponsive.  It happens especially at forum sites, even this one.  I notice that in the status bar it flips between waiting for a google.g.doubleclick page and the forum post page.  It continuously grinds and tries to load until after several minutes a "out of memory at line xxx" message appears.  I have to go to task manager and kill the iexplore process to exit that browser page.  It does it on other PCs too.  It does not do that in firefox or google chrome.  Any idea what it might be?  It's IE7…

    Thanks,

    Lane



  • I upgraded to IE8 and now it seems to work…



  • I upgraded a second pc to IE8 and it still had the same problem.  I deleted the temp files and cookies, and now it works too…
