Yes, this is the same problem I reported two days ago with 2.1RELEASE.
You will find that if you change the httpd_accel_port to a false port, you
will no longer get the loop error, you will get a "cannot contact"
or something like that.

This means that squid looks at http_accel_port, but NOT at httpd_accel_host,
at least in our circumstances.

Subject: http_accel and forwarding loops

I just did the upgrade to squid-2.1.PATCH2 from squid 1.x and I have a
strange problem with a forwarding loop. I do run Squid as cache as well
as http accelerator as the main webserver is behind a slow leased line.
This is all fine and well with one exception: if local users do not
explicetely configure to not cache the www server, they will get an
access denied error due to a forwarding loop. The configuration is as

proxy server is on port 80, is a cname for http_accell_host is Always_direct is set
to allow for both and

If a proxy request for comes in, squid now contacts itself
instead of directly and the error occurs. Is there any way
to configure squid to redirect the proxy request to
