Squid 2.7.9 pkg v.4.3.4 Seems to be Blocking Google.com only



  • I'm running pfSense 2.1.5-Release x64

    I just configured Squid and a few other services last night and at that time everthing worked, and I poked around after applying each one before moving to the previous.

    Packages Installed:
    Squid
    Snort
    Service Watchdog
    Antivirus

    When the problem started it said it was associated with the Antivirus package not running, yet within pfSense everything was displayed as running appropriately.

    After uninstalling Snort and the antivirus service I'm not getting the following error message:

    **ERROR

    The requested URL could not be retrieved

    While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.google.com/

    The following error was encountered:

    Connection to Failed
    The system returned:

    (1) Operation not permitted
    The remote host or network may be down. Please try the request again.

    Your cache administrator is admin@localhost.

    I can access other google serices such as maps, gmail, and drive with out an issue, it's just the ability to go to google.com so I can preform a search.

    Any Ideas?



  • I just found a work around for the problem but I'll leave this up incase soemone has a better idea, or solution.

    WHat I did to remedy the issue was to create an exception in: Services -> Proxy Server -> Cache Mgmt -> Do not cache.

    Here I added:
    Google.com
    www.Google.com
