  • Why does Sage Start communicate to port 443?
    reddit.com/r/Sage | 2021-07-06
    A web cache e.g. squid catches such packages and Sage is not able to connect to the server. It took me quite a while to find this issue. Is there any way to change the port? So far, I didn't manage to add an exception for squid to exclude this package and therefore, I had to deactivate squid.
  • Squid
    Squid is a caching proxy for the Web that supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and more to reduce bandwidth and improve response times. It can route content requests to servers in a wide variety of ways to build cache server hierarchies that optimize network throughput. Offers extensive access controls and runs on most available operating systems. YourBrainOnJazz explains, "Squid is not only a proxy, it also is an in-memory cache and has load balancing capabilities... Squid is used by companies, CDN's and ISP's around the world, legally, to help optimize delivery of content to consumers more efficiently and quickly."
