Q: Heirarchical requests using IPs not FQDN

Hi all,
        Some people here have a specialised application which
accesses the Internet via a proxy. This proxy (child proxy) is part
of a hierarchy and satisfies all http requests via a parent proxy.
(parent proxy). For various reasons they need the child proxy to
make all requests to the parent using an IP address and not
the usual domain name. The application however can perform
its request of the child proxy using a domain name.

In other words, I need the child proxy to convert all domain names
to IP addresses, and then use this IP address in the request to
the parent proxy instead of the domain name. Does squid provide
any mechanism to do this? Or do I have to use a redirector
to rewrite the URL to use the IP? In which case, is this external
redirection program called before or after ICP requests are made?
I am pretty sure that redirection must happen first.

Any suggestions or information appreciated...
