I have investigate better about the problem that brings up CPU and Squid process over 100%!
We have this situation: Dansguardian on port 8080 and Squid on port 3128.

The The problem appear when telnetting, from LAN, to:

Squid process raise up, in few seconds, to 100% and nobody can surf..

I disabled NAT, to make sure it was not a loop of iptables-transparent proxying redirection.

Have you good some suggestions for us?

Thank you again!
