G'day Ryan!

http_access sets if an object from your cache can be taken,
icp_access sets if someone can check to see if you have an object,
miss_access sets if you will fetch an object for someone if you don't have it
on disk.

So if another cache passes the ICP rules, they then have to get the object from
disk (if a HIT) which will use the http_access rules or see if you will fetch
it for them (if a MISS) which will use the miss_access rules.

icp_access usually matches http_access ... so that you don't tell a cache that
you have the object, but then it fails when it trys to retrieve it.


ps do you mean http_access deny any or http_access deny all?
