Well, that's the point...What the 'remote proxy' sees is a _client_ request. never

earlier for the same object, but squid can't tell the difference between an HTTP
request from a neighbour and an HTTP request from a client. They're both
identically formatted HTTP requests.

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.
