[CS-FSLUG] squid and avahi: squid fails to resolve names via mDNS

Thanks for the reply. That would stand to reason (squid resolve like
everything else). My resolve.conf is generated by resolvconf and only lists
nameserver as the localhost. Which I'll bet should be the router/gateway as
it is on all my other linux boxes. That's something to look into deeper.
Nothing I've changed so far is having an effect.

I have a hunch that maybe my iptable rules are wrong too. I only have
issues resolving names from http originated quires. Ping, ssh, ftp all
resolve just fine.  This all started when I installed squid & squidguard. I
set up squid as a transparent proxy which required adding a bunch of rules
I don't really understand.

Oh well thanks again for your help. I've got too many other things to be
doing (finding a job, researching starting a business, working on my errand
list...) instead of messing with this right now. I sure would like to know
what I'm doing wrong and see this working. I just shouldn't be wasting all
this time on it.
