Hello everyone,


I am currently trying to configure a simple squid3 proxy with a basic configuration
I am working on a virtual machine ubuntu 11.10 connected to my lan via bridge adapter.
My squid version is 3.1.14


I want my squid to cache any requests from the internet and especially the ones coming from an apache server of mine (in my lan).
Then I want the client to get requests directly fetched from the proxy cache.


However I only got TCP_MISSs (and sometimes TCP_REFRESH_UNMODIFIED, I don't know why...) and DIRECT access in my access.log.


Here are results in access.log :


1372238339.252 1 127.0.0.1 TCP_MISS/304 311 GET http://172.18.1.36/lala.mov - DIRECT/172.18.1.36 -
1372238340.029 1 127.0.0.1 TCP_MISS/304 311 GET http://172.18.1.36/lala.mov - DIRECT/172.18.1.36 -
1372238344.113 0 127.0.0.1 TCP_MISS/304 311 GET http://172.18.1.36/lala.mov - DIRECT/172.18.1.36 -
1372238351.067 1 127.0.0.1 TCP_MISS/304 311 GET http://172.18.1.36/lala.mov - DIRECT/172.18.1.36 -



It seems my squid does not cache requests and always retrieves data from the apache server.


Could you help me on this ? I am really stuck with this and I cannot find the solution and what is wrong in my configuration file.
Any hints ??


Thanks in advance for your responses and help.
