i had this same problem on my win32 pproxy and i have my connect over the LAN during work hours, night time it's off and i noticed that during the i-net off time the clients could'nt connect to the pproxy, i solved this by adding the IP's of the client boxes to the c:\windows\hosts file so that the pproxy could do a DNS lookup even when the i-net connect was down that shuld work if ya would add the IP's and the DNS names in the /etc/hosts file in linux as well ..
