There are two ports commonly used for tcp-requests of such services:
3128 (default for squid/harvest caches) and 8080 (default for netscape
cache?). For historical reasons some caches also run on port 80.

Since the corresponding rcf doesn't list proxy-service there is no
standard port.

In the mail-list of german cache-administrators, we made a
recommendation to use the dns-alias www-cache.[domain] and the ports
3128 (tcp) and 3130 (udp) if possible.
