When I am using squid proxy in the server, I get an error message, "The request or reply is too large" from any node in the LAN.

How can I solve this?


This error message appears when you try downloading large file using GET or uploading it using POST/PUT. There are several parameters to look for:



These two are set to 0 by default, which means no limits at all. They should not be limited unless you really know how that affects your squid behavior. Or at all in standard proxy.



These two default to 64kB starting from Squid-3.1. Earlier versions of Squid had defaults as low as 2 kB. In some rather rare circumstances even 64kB is too low, so you can increase this value.
