 Well, one way of detecting if squid is up and runing is using echoping to
test it, requesting for a page from your http server (ok, this will
only work if the httpd is up and runing, but you can test it also, and
have some fall back test for the proxy) .. with echoping you can define
even the timeouts for the proxy, so you can set it up to say a 10 seconds
(from my tests squid takes an average of 0.2 seconds to serve a page from
our local http server) and if it doesnt reply in that time its probably
something hapened to squid..

 Just my 2 cents :-)

PS: by the way, anyone checked if squid 1.1.7 solved the ftpget problems
with the buggy PASV ftp servers? (from my tests it seems it had, but i
havent put it to a real stress situation..)
