The problem is that I have almost the whole university being proxied
transparently(am using Linux as router) so I definately can't use
PAC scripts.

Rereading the above e-mail, I got the idea that I could set the
router to always pass these specific sites to one proxy(when
users start complaining) i.e. setting the sibling to forward,
let's say having the following in the squid.conf file

cache_host parent 80 3130 proxy-only
cache_host parent 80 3130 proxy-only

cache_host_domain !

what do you guys out there think about this?
