Websites not loading via Squid proxy

If Squid proxy is configured on a server that have no IPv6 connectivity, and trying to reach an IPv6 compatible site, the squid will try to reach the site using IPv6 and will fail without even trying IPv4.

We can resolve this problem by disabling IPv6 in squid.conf.

Step1: Open squid configuration file

#vi /etc/squid/squid.conf

Step2: Add the below line the end of this file

tcp_outgoing_address 0.0.0.0 all

Step3: Restart squid

#/etc/init.d/squid restart

That's all... No all sites will load via proxy...
