OK, thanks everyone who helped me with the problem. It was indeed an
Internet Explorer issue. I installed Opera on a test Win 98 workstation
and it worked perfectly. I have now taken steps to move over to Opera as
our browser of choice. The free version does have adverts, but I have
configured it to show those which could be deemed 'educational'. The
pupils see advertising on nearly every site they visit anyhow so the
occasional advert in Opera does them no harm!
I thought that when configuring squid, you would typically disable
caching for security reasons. You don't typically want to cache https
pages. Additionally, I usually found the errors by watching the squid
logs on Verbose-mode.
