I think some versions of squid may be a bit broken with respect to correctly handling HTTP/1.1 and in the case of portsnap downloading many files, squid starts closing some of the open connections, which portsnap then attempts to reuse. There was a thread on one of the FreeBSD lists in late 2006. Google a bit and you'll probably find it. Don't know for certain this is your problem, but it did fix it when I came across the problem. - barry _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
