Hi Miguel,

Thanks for the suggestion. I am using the ifconfig alias for virtual
domains and I find that if I configure just one squid to listen on port 80
for just one IP address, I'm still connected the other virtual IP address
into that same one! For example, still
translates to The real server is listening on
port 81. I'm not sure if Apache 1.1.1 lets me configure the virtual
hostname to listen on other ports. That way I don't have to run more than
one squid on a less busy virtual hostname.
