I don't think squid can't accelerate https (I'm sure if I'm wrong, someone
will pipe up), and even if you could, it can't cache it, so there's not
much to be gained. What you should probably do is use something like the
firewall toolkit's plug-gw to connect directly from the ssl port on the
squid machine to the ssl port on the accelerated server.
