 squid err: urlParse: Illegal character in hostname
Author: reiner 
Date:   10-11-00 12:20

now Im following the instruction on how to install squid proxy server, then when I execute "/usr/local/sbin/squid -NCd1" and error msg popup (whole message below), my rc.conf contains "" already, I can ping my "hostname" already, what other file(s) should I configure? I sure I miss something. ;-(

I figure it out already the problem is:

in /etc/rc.conf my hostname is:

so the correct should be:

hostname should'nt contain "_". So I conclude hostname and domainame should not contain special characters (am I right? :)). I'v learned from my mistakes :).. Maybe some newbie (like me) will encounter this kind of error, I hope what I share could help! :)

I have to read more!!! to learn :)
