[squid-users] Slow App through Proxy

We have an app configured to use Squid Proxy (3.5.11). The client machine
does not have access to the internet except for the whitelisted domains in
Squid. The app launches painfully slow. It seems to be SSL Certificate
related. I found a way to fix it but don't know why it fixes it. Let me


If I go into IE and configure it to use the Squid Proxy and I go to our
website (SSL Based), the page comes up fine with a nice lock symbol
signifying SSL. I then turn off the proxy config in IE to stop using the
Squid Proxy. I relaunch our app and it launches fast forever more!!! I
thought that it might be downloading a certificate but I look at all the
Windows certificates either through IE or CertMgr.msc and it appears that no
new certificates are in there after this exercise. Something in the Windows
config changed and I don't know what it is. I would love to know because I
would like to see if there is an easier method to fix this as opposed to the
one I just outlined.


Any input would be greatly appreciated.
