Non-ICP parents

I've recently got a connection to the @Home domain, who appear to be
running Netscape proxy cache on 8080, with an autoconfig between
2 or more local caches.

I'm running Squid 1.1.2 at home with a couple of NLANR caches as parents,
and a
few siblings on a co-operative basis. I'd like to include the @Home caches
in a reasonable manner. They don't appear to have ICP or UDP echo enabled.

I'm not exactly sure what I should be putting in the config; I've
currently got things like

cache_host parent 3128 3130
#cache_host parent 8080 7 no-query default
cache_host parent 8080 7 no-query
cache_host parent 8080 7 no-query
cache_host_domain ! !
neighbor_type_domain sibling .com .ca .net

(proxy is an alias for proxy1, proxy2)

but from the logs it's not clear that requests are falling through to
the proxy; rather, I seem to get DIRECT more often than not.

...BTW, I see in it
  cache_host parent 3128 3130 no-query default
 .. will connect to it for all queries.
says direct will be preferred over default
