Thanks for that message! It let me find this gem in main.c (line 368):

    if (!httpd_accel_mode || Config.Accel.withProxy) {

I seem to have to have httpd_accel_with_proxy set to be able to set up my
systems as an little accelerator farm.

Perhaps the sample config file could be clearer about ICP not being
enabled when the cache is set up as an accelerator? I don't think that
the application that I'm using squid for the discinction between
accelerator and proxy is clear. At least not as far as ICP being a
feature of a proxy.

Now that I've enabled that, I'm seeing ICP requests in both my test
caches. Thanks! Now I can worry about that router...
