in icp.c : icpHierarchical() this code is present:

    if (BIT_TEST(request->flags, REQ_AUTH))
        return 0;

REQ_AUTH is set when an "Authentication:" header is found in
the request, so it looks like all these requests never go through
my parents cache.

Is there a reason for this other than safety?

On a totally unrelated note, is it possible to direct "POST"
requests through my parents? The 'passthrough_proxy' only allows
for a single parent, but I'd like to treat these "POST" requests
like ordinary "GET" requests (different parents for different

Why? Because there are some services where you need to login,
which uses POST. The remote side remembers the IP address of my
proxy. Then when I try to GET some info, the request goes through
my parent and is refused (they _also_ check by IP number) :(

Is this possible?

All I want is treating all requests like ordinary GET requests..

Thanks for your time, Richard.
