Squid 1.X is no longer supported, and haven't been for close to a year
now. And Squid-1.1.9 is way old for being a Squid-1.x release.

Any Squid 2.X release.

For Squid-1.X your only choice is to use inside_firewall to force Squid
to use parents for every request outside your local network(s). The main
problem with that approach is that if the parent fails then your Squid
will fail as well.
