Is your machine properly configured for IPv6?

Try the following:

	ping www.google.com

	ping6 www.google.com

If you get a response to both of those then your machine looks like it is 
correctly working on both IPv4 and IPv6, and we need to investigate further 
what the problem with Squid is, but if you get a response from the first 
command and not from the second, then IPv6 is not working correctly, and 
therefore Squid cannot connect to Google's IPv6 address (as shown below).

If the latter turns out to be the problem, I hope someone else can remind us 
what the configuration command is to tell Squid to use IPv4 and not IPv6.

You can tell that the day just isn't going right when you find yourself using 
the telephone before the toilet.
