Maybe I was not very clear.

I have more than one http server in the same machine, one per IP

I'd like to use just ONE squid process to accelerate ALL http
virtual addresses. But to to this, it needs to know from which
address the request came, and select a virtual to accelerate in
function of it.

As far as I've seen until now, it's now (yet) possible to do this.
But I may be wrong.
