Q: Parent running but not caching?

Is there a way to configure squid to cope with a Netscape parent which is
up, but not running the cache software ? At the moment squid gets a reply
to its UDP enquiry (bounced off port 7) because the parent is running
TCP/IP, but gets a rude reply when it tries to make a TCP connection to
the data port (8080).

I have a number of parents configured and squid uses the one which
responds quickest - usually the one which doesn't have the load of
running a cache server, of course!

Thanks for any suggestions,
