Re: !.5.0 Wont compile
My bad...

You have hit on the problem. I was compiling on a machine with egcs-2.91.66 and a very patchy distribution. I compiled it on a clean RH 7.2 with 2.96 and things went swimmingly. I did have a problem on the subsequent 'make install' on the target machine (I re-compiled --with-tunnel) failing because of the prior copy of tiny.conf and/or tiny.conf-dist being in the way. Once I blew them away everything was cool, so you may want to look at that.

This version seems faster so far. I was having some problems with 1.4.3 after running for awhile so took to restarting it with a cron job once every few hours just to clean things out. Seemed to help.

This one looks good so far. Thanks for your efforts and for putting this out OS.

D'oh. I just realized I looked at the wrong location in the source! I'll have to look into this closer.

Hmm... what compiler were you using to compile tinyproxy and on what OS. It sounds like the compiler could not determine the storage size of "size_t", but I would have though it would have failed earlier in the compile since size_t is used earlier in the source. Maybe your compiler doesn't like having a variable defined within an "if" block.

!.5.0 Wont compile
Seems to be some problems with inet.h as to including arpa or inet flavors.

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/tinyproxy-1.5.0/src'
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -O2 -DNDEBUG -D_REENTRANT -c acl.c
acl.c: In function `check_acl':
acl.c:182: storage size of `test_addr' isn't known
acl.c:182: storage size of `match_addr' isn't known

I have been using 1.4.x for quite a while and been relatively happy. It's a little flakey, but better than the others I have found.

tinyproxy 1.4.2.2 Fixes
tinyproxy 1.4.2.2 fixes a problem with the Anonymous header functions. The new code does case insensitive searching instead of case sensitive. There is also a security fix with the syslog system. There will be a new release on Freshmeat in the next few days.

Version 1.4.2 is Broken
I found out last night that 1.4.2 is broken. There is a segmentation fault problem in the DNS caching system. I have made a new release (1.4.2.1) which fixes this problem. You can download it from SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2632).

v1.3.3
Odd thing is that there are arguments listed in the man pages that you can't execute. Umm, like a big one tinyproxy -f that allows a filter against sites in that list ... don't work! DUH!!!! It lalso doesn't like hotmail and denies access ...
