Upgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2 has broken my squid transparent proxy

  • I upgraded from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2 and unless my browser (both Firefox and IE) is specifically configured to use the proxy I get the following error message when I have transparent proxy enabled in squid.

  • Has there been any resolution to this yet?  I too am receiving these errors after upgrading to 2.2.2.


  • reinstall 2.2.2 and start again

  • Hello,

    I have the same problem !!!
    I reinstalled pFsense 2.2.2 and the transparent mode of squid don't work :-(

  • I'm going to assume Transparency is still broken even in 2.2.2?  I figured they would have fixed this by now.

  • do a clean 2.2.2 reinstall and try again

  • clean install because im on 2.2.2 works fine. Also make sure you white list the proxy on squid see picture. Also make sure squid is running. When doing a clean  install first get squid3 configure it, then install squidGuard.
