Re: WARNING: Forwarding loop detected

Either you have set up a forwarding loop (by making both parent of the
other...) or you have set the same name for both caches in squid.conf

You should either make one parent of the other, or both siblings to each

parent == always send misses to a parent.
sibling == only if it is in the siblings cache. (the sibling responded
with a ICP hit message)
