There's an easy fix. Look in neighbors.c in the function peerCheckConnectStart().
About four lines down you see:

    p->tcp_up = 0;

Change the zero to a one, and squid will never mark a peer (parent or neighbour) down, regardless of the error. It'll try every time a request is made.

You might consider the connect_retry patch as well.


Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
