Looks like an error message from your firewall..

How should clients be configured if behind your firewall and not using
Squid? The same configuration needs to be applied to Squid.

The last two does not make sense.

My guess is that your firewall is a "transparent" one, and that you
should not have any cache_peer lines at all.
