Squid Proxy configuration

P: 23
I 've installed squid proxy server on my Ubuntu machine (Vmware image)

It has no direct internet connection and is on a private n/w (192.168).
It uses another proxy server to reach the internet. it's on another network

Now when i configure other machines to point this Ubuntu as their proxy server it wouldnot connect to the internet !

http_port 3128

acl home_net src 192.168.209.0/255.255.255.0
http_allow access home_net



proxy server <------------------>Ubuntu squid server<------------------->Local net

Any suggestions appreciated

Most likely you have use the wrong network type for your VMWare image. You most likely will want to use a bridged network in order for the machine to receive traffic that is on the physical network.
