Well, the problem is that our Intranet is behind a firewall. We have
two IP provider using dynamic IP allocation via PPP on two ISDN
lines. I want to run two squids on the proxy/cache machine which
leaves the user to choose the IP provider route via a proxy definition
in Netscape. Obviously the two squid should share the cache. At the
moment I have no plausible solution to it.
