this happend very often if you use transparent proxy over satellite internet.
Try setting you station to use proxy direct, and disable transparent proxy...
Thanks djape for your very insightful observations. I do use transparent proxy, and I have a satellite Internet link (Gilat C-Band). Using transparent proxy is very convinient since I get to force everyone to use the cache, and since I can implement some url
and file-type (.exe, .pif, etc) filtering. Let's hope MT will investigate the issue and fix it. I'll probably have to keep rebooting it as a temporal solution for now.
I wonder what Cameron Earnshaw is using for his DNS cache, perhaps I could try it too.
Thanks markon, but my cache size is 8192kB, and that rarely fills up (722kB currently). Is clearing the cache not defeating the goal of caching in the first place? In any case, I'd love to have a cache-clearing script, if you have one.
Thanks to everyone else and Cheers!!!
