Hello,
I just read your message.
I use Squid and Netscape Proxy 3.5 and everything is OK.
NS proxy talk icp, and he is define as parent to my squid 1.2b19.

An advantage of Netscape Proxy is to talk icp AND carp, this is the
reason why we take it as parent cache.

        Objet: ADVICE NEEDED: Netscape Proxy Server with Squid Server
as a parent

        Hello,

        I have been a dedicated Unix sys admin for almost 13 years now.
Squid Proxy
        server
        has been one of my favourite "tools" of the trade. I have been
using it at
        various sites
        (ISPs, schools, large commercial sites, defense sites...). So
far, so good!

        In order to prevent unnecessary load on Internet (with this
message), I
        have extensively
        searched various databases for a solution. Since I have not
found it, I am
        politely asking
        members of this mailing list for an advice.

        This is the scenario: upstream ISP uses Squid Proxy Server. For
some
        reasons (difficult for
        me to explain), the company plans to use Netscape Proxy Server
on its side.
        Now, I am
        not sure how Netscape Proxy Server under Windows/NT works (and
could not
        find much
        useful information on the Net; plus, telephone call and an email
message to
        Netscape
         Australia has still not been answered!?), so the question is
simple:

           Can a Netscape Proxy Server (or for the sake of brevity, any
other
        non-Unix
           proxy server) be used with Squid Proxy Server as a parent? In
other
        words, if
           someone has a Netscape Proxy Server and wants to "delegate"
requests to
           a Squid parent server - would it work? Has anyone done it? Is
there a
        compatibility
           issue?

        I admit that my knowledge of Windows/NT environment is quite
poor (and
        luckily, I do not
        need to support it).

        Quite frankly, I would prefer to continue to use Squid Proxy
server at all
        sites I support, but alas,
        it is not always my decision what to do :)

        Thank you for your time to read this message and (maybe) respond
to it.

        Regards from "down-under" (far away Australia),
