Archived from groups: alt>os>linux>smoothwall (more info?)

The other evening I changed the 'Max Incoming Size' on my proxy
setting from 51200 to 512000 Kb and saved it. The reason I did it was
no longer needed so I changed it back and again saved it. I then
couldn't access the web.

Unticking the 'Enable' in proxy settings will allow web access again.

If I tick 'enable' it won't restart the proxy service and stops all
internet access. I've removed all .gz logs and my /var/log is at only
19% used so plenty of space there. I've looked but can't find anything
obvious in 'messages' so can anyone guide me here as to how to restart
my proxy please?

Thanks for the comprehensive reply. I checked the file permissions
as you described, all matched. While Googling about I found the
command /usr/local/bin/restartsquid mentioned so I tried it. Lo
and behold my proxy restarted. I then tried the 'enable' checkbox
on the interface (on and off a few times) and it worked as normal,
starting and stopping the proxy as it should.

I'm sure my Smoothwall can't have got any funny ideas from a Microsoft
machine (as I don't have any) but this just seems to be "one-of-those-
things" that Windows users just accept happen occasionally.

Thanks for the help anyway, I'll make a note of your answer for the
future.

Regards,
Andy J.
