Setting up Squid3.0 as an accelerator that needs to handle SSL.

As you recommended Henrik:
Un-encrypted my key. Modified key and cert permissions.
No longer get FATAL: Bungled squid.conf error. ! Good.

For testing running Squid on port 9999
That works fine.

But when I attempt to access https://.......:9999=20
I get nothing.

The cache log shows:

2004/02/13 10:36:37| clientProcessRequest: Invalid Request
2004/02/13 10:36:46| parseHttpRequest: Requestheader contains NULL =
2004/02/13 10:36:46| clientParseRequestMethod: Unsupported method 'L' =
2004/02/13 10:36:46| clientProcessRequest: Invalid Request

Appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you,
John Kent

This generates an encryted RSA key of 1024 bits. Squid can not load=20
encrypted RSA keys unless you start it with the -N option. Recommend to=20
decrypt the key unless you actually want to have to enter the encryption =

key manually each time Squid is restarted.

-out webcache2.crt

This generates the certificate.

The error indiates that =
does not exists, or maybe that Squid does not have permission to enter =

Maybe more information is given if you start Squid with the -X flag.
