Re: SQUID with cache_peer config + E2guardian - too many connections - RESOLVED
Klaus, You got it! Thanks a lot!!
I just added the directive like:
cache_peer 127.0.0.1 parent 8080 0 login=*:password no-netdb-exchange
always_direct deny all
never_direct allow all
It worked fine now. All those thousands of connections disappeared.
Just curious what is that "option" of "netdb-exchange". Where can I find further info about it?
Thanks everyone!! Closed-Resolved.

tried to add the option "no-netdb-exchange" on your cache_peer line?
