This is correct.

I have http-gw configured as per instructions from TIS to answer
requests on port 80 of the firewall. This allow runs as a proxy for
http, ftp and gopher and can allow redirected access to http
servers behind the firewall.

I have squid configured to run on port 3128 as per the default

As http-gw and squid are using different ports there are no

Coincidently, I have a httpd running on yet another port to allow
cachemgr.cgi to run.
