Find your squid.conf file. Likely path to it could be /usr/lib/squidc/etc, or
maybe /etc/squid.

That file should contain a setting for logfile_rotate, probably at a default of
10. Change that to 2.

Then add a once-a-day job to root's crontab, on the order of:
1 1 * * * /usr/lib/squid/bin/squid -k rotate

Unable to connect to the proxy server A proxy


This is a brain-dead system default setting from Microsoft. If your company/network requires you to use a proxy server, they can make it happen invisibly to you. There is nothing wrong with turning it off except that your connection might slow down if there is a proxy on your network and you don\'t use it. Proxy can cache (save recent pages) and/or restrict your access (filter porn sites). Filtering should be invisible or not configurable by users. The MS default is just plain wrong.

Full list of Mozilla Firefox Hacks for Browser and Addons


These are a few of my favourite hacks for Mozilla Firefox 3 all of these will be saved in the prefs.js file and can be altered either using the about:config method in the browser or by using a combination of the Edit my Config extension XPI and the Yaldex Software Free JavaScript Editor
always make sure that you create a BUP first before any changes.

browser.cache.disk.capacity » 150000
browser.cache.memory.capacity » 150000
This will set the maximum disk space and memory for the browser's cache to ~150Mb

browser.cache.offline.capacity » 20480
browser.cache.memory.enable » false
Forcing Firefox to disable the cache but also to keep it self-contained.
(this will make pages that you visit often to be slow and stay slow, though so be careful)

browser.download.manager.closeWhenDone » true
browser.search.openintab » true
So that the searches from the search bar go into a new tab instead of the current one.
browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground » true
This forces Firefox to open new links in the background so that it doesn't steal focus from the page I am still trying to read!
browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick » false
browser.tabs.tabMinWidthset » 0
Disables tab scrolling, otherwise you can set it to the minimum allowable width of a tab (in pixels) before tab scrolling comes in.
browser.urlbar.hideGoButton » true
To remove that Go button you never use anyway.
browser.urlbar.maxRichResults » 5
browser.urlbar.autoFill » true
This will enable auto-completion.

browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo » 1
The higher the number the higher the memory, so I set this to 1 because I still seem to close tabs accidentally, but usually only 1

browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers » 1
This determines how many web pages to store in the cache.
Setting to 0 saves about 4Mb of cache per page, but slows things down for back/forward operations.
content.notify.backoffcount » 5
plugin.expose_full_path » true
ui.submenuDelay » 0

content.max.tokenizing.time » 2250000
content.notify.interval » 750000
content.notify.ontimer » true
content.switch.threshold » 750000

zoom.maxPercent -> 400 for the ability to zoom closer
zoom.minPercent -> 10 will let you can zoom out further
browser.zoom.full -> false for Firefox 2-like text zooming only
browser.zoom.siteSpecific -> false Removes site-specific zoom settings
toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues -> You can change zoom levels here


network.http.pipelining » true
network.http.proxy.pipelining » true
Allows for the use of proxy HTTP/1.1 pipelining.
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests » 8 (max 30)
Firefox can make more simultaneous connections for faster downloading
network.prefetch-next » false
network.http.max-connections » 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server » 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy » 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server » 8
nglayout.initialpaint.delay » 0
Firefox starts to render a page immediately (defaults to 250ms).

layout.word_select.eat_space_to_next_word » false
So that when you double-click on a word to select it, Firefox does not select the space to the right of that
word

extensions.checkCompatibility -> false
extensions.checkCompatibility.3.6 -> false
local_install.extensions.checkCompatibility -> false
extensions.checkUpdateSecurity -> false


extensions.getAddons.showPane -> false Removes add-ons search
browser.cache.offline.capacity -> 20480 Increase offline cache

Hola someone tell me how to change up into proxy server help.


What is your default browser? Settings for using a Proxy server differs from each browser. For example, The settings for Mozilla Firefox browser are as follows,
  1. Click Tools->Options;
  2. "General", "Connection Settings";
  3. Select "Manual Proxy Configuration";
  4. Enter proxy IP and port to appropriate fields;
  5. Click OK to close Connection Settings;
  6. Click OK to close Options;
  7. Reload browser.
You must also be aware that the use of proxy servers without the express permission from the owner of the proxy server may be illegal in some states and/or countries. Use at your own risk.
Using a Proxy server masks your real IP address with a masked IP address. You can ensure this by visiting www.IP-Details.Com and check your IP before and after using a Proxy server.

I have two user on my computer but on one i can get on the internet and on the other i cant it says change the proxy setting


every user created on the OS will have to have different settings.....

before making changes...get the foll info from your internet service provider

once that's available.....

you can use different settings in in WinXP as below....

log in to first user accunt and make the settings....for....
IP Address, Subnet mask, Default Gateway, DNS server address both primary and secondary
use the info obtained from the service provider.....
....then
in the IP address filed use some thing similar like this..(check your internet service provider for that info).....the foll is only an example from my PC
say....192.168.1.2 for user ONE

log out....
shut down and restart PC
log in to second user accunt and make the settings....for all the above fileds....then
in the IP address filed use 192.168.1.4 for user TWO....(note the difference of the last filed of the IP address....2 vs 4)...every new user a/c the last field of IP address keeps changing

1st user ....say 192.168.1.2
2nd user .........192.168.1.4
3rd user ..........192.168.1.6
etc...

Where do find 'Browser configuration'. I am getting Error 413 message ''Entity too large'' on a website and some adice to clear it was to go into 'browseconfig' and check frst two boxes. Need to find...


Error Message: "413 – Request Entity Too Large"
Translation: The Web server has determined that the data being sent by the browser is simply too large (that is, too many bytes). This occurs when file size limits are exceeded. For example, when uploading a very large file (using a technique such as HTTP PUT), a 413 error may be returned when the Web server sees that the file size is too large.
Solution: This error is typically due to configuration or programming errors on the Web server end. It may be possible to shrink the request entity (such as uploading a smaller file). Otherwise, the Web server will need to be reconfigured to accommodate the larger entity. You should inform Webmasters of the offending sites about the trouble.
If you are using a proxy you may have to configure it to allow large packet transfers.

Exchange server 5.5


Firstly, Retention periods may be set up in the exchange so that mail is kept within Exchange for a period of time even thought the users may have deleted it. Check out http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246283 to change the standard retention policy to suit.

Also using a tool to defragment the Exchange Database may be useful - Try PerfectDisk for Exchange. But remove as much other stuff as possible first as it needs space to work.

A couple of things... Exchange 5.5 has been replaced three times now and support ceased from Microsoft on 31st December 2003. NT Server support ceased a year later and is about to be replaced for the third time as well. I'd REALLY look at getting more up to date software on suitable hardware.

When deleting emails, remember any legal requirements you may have for retaining / archiving emails.

Download MAil From JAna SErver


Hello Sir,

As my internet is shared through cc proxy
I have to put proxies to all of my programs so that they can run.
Unfortunatelly the only one I cannot get running is outlook express.
When I try to edit the outlook proxy settings it sends me to Internet Explorer's settings
(which makes me think that outlook and internet explorer share the same proxy settings).
The strangest thing is that IE runs with no problems
but outlook express cannot connect to the server.
It says that the server cannot be found (both incoming and outgoing)
Could you please advise me how to make the outlook running.
Also I had try to install squid 2.7 proxy on win2k8 but i m getting some error with squid service is not runniong on win2k8 it says create services failed ...please advice me which proxy server i can use our network ( my task is only i want 2 secure internet & block some sites on my internet and outlook should be a work )

Thank you very much.
Have a great day,



Regards
Ashok
