Summary0003853: transparent proxy does not start properly at boot
DescriptionI am running endian 2.4.1 community edition ( on a dell poweredge 1850. The proxy is configured to be transparent with havp and dansguardian, squid and content filtering enabled. When booting, no users can access the internet, there are no messages or responses to the browser, it is as if the proxy is not running at all, but internal systems that are set to bypass the transparent proxy can get to the internet just fine. Switching the proxy to be non-transparent, turning it off, back on, and then switching to transparent resolves the issue, but this is a pretty big problem if there isn't someone there to perform this from the GUI.
Additional InformationThe problem also sometimes occurs if there are changes made to the proxy settings that cause it to need to restart, repeating the same process of switching to non-transparent, stopping, starting, and switching back to transparent seems to work in this situation as well.

Had to shut down and later cold boot due to a power issue, and confirmed that this bug is repeatable... a simple acknowledgment of this problem would be appreciated. It is very disconcerting knowing that internet will be down for the entire building if things get rebooted unless someone logs in and manually toggles a switch.

For anyone else that runs into this:
symptoms: squid (web proxy), havp (anti-virus), and dansguardian (content filter) do not start at boot. Switching proxy from transparent to non-transparent and switching back starts the services.
Fix: make havp chkconfig aware, copy havp.conf to havp.config, test that both services start manually from the commandline. make sure squid ports are explicitly allowed from green interface in system access firewall, make sure squid starts from the commandline. Reboot, confirm it works now.

Hi datapharmer,

could I ask to you if there is any error in the logs?

Thanks in advance!
