Hi Ray. Here are the proxy parameters I have in httpd.conf here at for proxy testing:

# Proxy Server directives. Uncomment the following line to
# enable the proxy server:

ProxyRequests On

# To enable the cache as well, edit and uncomment the following lines:

CacheRoot /usr/local/etc/httpd/proxy
CacheSize 5
CacheGcInterval 4
CacheMaxExpire 24
CacheLastModifiedFactor 0.1
CacheDefaultExpire 1

Note that I'm not using upstream proxies from here, just a SOCKSified
version of Apache to get out through our firewalls. These are just the
default values for the cache control, but they're reasonable for trying
out the proxy.

And now, on a lighter note:

There is so much sand in Northern Africa that if it were spread out it
would completely cover the Sahara Desert.
