I have set up a squid proxy on EC2, and I'm trying to use it from behind a corporate firewall. After configuring firefox to use my proxy, I tried to surf to yahoo.com. The browser seems to hang as if handling an extremely long running request. Checking the squid logs I see:
1431354246.891 11645 xxx.0.xx.xxx TCP_MISS/200 7150 CONNECT www.yahoo.com:443 username HIER_DIRECT/xx.xxx.XX.xx-
So far, I don't have a good explanation of most of these entries , but from http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq/SquidLogs#access.log , I've found that:
MISS = The response object delivered was the network response object.
What does this mean? Is anything I can do to connect to the outside internet?
