I need a little input here. I have set up a test proxy unit in a building supporting about 20 PC’s. I have set the proxy server in my office so I can monitor the activity using the TAIL command. Our district is serviced by a single T1 that also services two other school districts to Micron. Needless to say things get REALLY SLOW right away. Here’s my problem, I can see the Proxy server answering the requests in the building. But as the day wears on, the requests from the Proxy server get slower and slower right along with the T1 access speed. It makes me think the Proxy server is going to the site being requested before it serves the files to the requesting workstations. Am I missing something in my conf files for the server? The Unit is a Celeron 336 with a 13gb HDD, 256mb RAM and a 3COM NIC at 100MBits. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
What I added to the Conf file:
#### PROXY INFO ADDED####
NoCache Dontgohere.com nono.com etc.com
# Proxy Access Defined
deny from all
allow from 10.177.0.0/255.255.255.0
