Accelerating https

We are trying to accelerate a https server - which is in our intranet
- with a squid 2 box with a routeable ip to get access from outside.

The only problem is: if i write a redirector as normally used for
accelerating http servers, squid does rewrite "http://" instead of

I set up the "virtual" acceleration; the proxy listens on the ports 443
and 80. The redirector works for the "normal" acceleration purposes but
not for SSL.

What am I doing wrong or can squid not accelerate https-servers?
Squid can do proxy for https so why cant he accelerate it?
