I get the following:

1998/04/07 09:54:14| marked bad
1998/04/07 09:54:14| commConnectHandle: FD 17[] conn suceeded (try 2)

(Note the differing IP addresses for the two attempts) Make sure your
debug_options are set properly in squid.conf, mine are set to ALL,1. The
best way to look for the functioning of the retry patch in your log file

        egrep 'try|mark' cache.log

Also, make sure that your Squid has the retry patch enabled. Your startup
banner should look like this:

1998/04/07 09:51:30| Restarting Squid Cache (version 1.1.20+retry)...
If you don't have the "+retry" in the version number, the connection-retry
patch is not enabled. Also, take a look at your IPcache contents - you
should see each address marked either "OK" or "BAD". Another possibility
might be your squid.conf options pertaining to single-address retries, but
in this case, has three addresses, so that's not the
