I recently installed 4.8-stable. When running
lynx, I can only access sites outside my LAN by launching lynx
as root. I can't access external sites if I launch lynx using
sudo or after su-ing to root. I've searched archives and
googled, and haven't found anything on this. It happened immediately
after the upgrade, before any post-installation configuration, i.e.
before setting up NAT, the firewall, etc. Whenever I try to access
an external site, I get
May 30 23:16:21 svold /kernel: Connection attempt to
TCP 127.0.0.1:3128 from 127.0.0.1:1188
3128 is the squid port. I don't have squid installed, and neither
squid or port 3128 are mentioned in any of my configuration files.
This has been going on for two weeks while I searched archives and
hunted through my config files. This only happens on the FBSD 4.8
box, which is my internet gateway. It doesn't happen on a 5.0 box,
which accesses the outside world through the 4.8 box. I'm completely
baffled. Does anyone have any idea what's going on?
