I tried

cache_host parent 3128 3130 weight=1

cache_host parent 8080 0 no-query default weight=2

but this only resulted in continuous


messages in the access.log

I tried
telnet 8080

and this worked

The admin @aztec said that he had disabled all echoes - whatever he

In the mean time I am using a squid proxy at another ISP
