I've been having some odd fetch/flush difficulties lately too - my
home machine, A Pentium III Windows 2000 box, rips through the
packets at proxy1.rwc.ca, the numbers changing quite rapidly as it
fetches or flushes via port 80, 25 packets in three seconds.

My UNIX systems, however, have a great deal of difficulty contacting
the proxies, to the point where I simply hardcoded proxy1.rwc.ca --
otherwise it would hang there for a while and finally fail, and
even when it works, it only manages about one packet per second.

Here's the only non-default:


These systems *may* be behind a transparent HTTP proxy, but the last
I heard the only thing being proxied was streaming media, not HTTP,
and I get the same slow rate on other ports.

Any suggestions?
