If you set inside_firewall, then squid is told that it can't go direct
and always tries to go througth a parent. If no parent if available then
a error is returned.

Without inside_firewall squid is a little more flexible:
1. Fetch it from nearest cache having it cached
2. Go throught a parent (with a couple of important exceptions)
3. Go direct

Squid never falls back to a parent if it fails to go direct, only the
other way around.

Yep. If your loader reports unresolved symbols then the program is not
correctly built. Rebuild it from the sources.
