Re: Using Squid to mediate between user and HTTP proxy

Take a look at the inside_firewall settings.. If you configure squid to
be inside a firewall, then all requests is sent to one of the parents.

All domains matching inside_firewall will go direct, all other throught
your parent proxy (no DNS lookup done/needed).

Corporate proxy: port 8080

cache_host 8080 7 default
