Your request is basically a HTTP/0.9 request. Squid does not appear to
support them any more, use at least HTTP/1.0 syntax. Also, Squid seems to
need 'a second line', which can be almost anything. Try something like:

$ telnet 3128
Accept: */*<CRLF>

That should to it. The "<CRLF>" is the carriage-return + linefeed
