RE: [SQU] two ISP on two ethernet adapters

Could you run 2 copies of squid running different config files? the
disadvantage here is 2 cache dirs which cannot be shared....or could the
second copy of squid use the first as an upstream parent, so the second
effectively uses no HD for caching?

Just my amateur suggestion..

Squid does not support selecting the outgoing IP address based on the
request. The configuration only allows for one specified IP, or none to
let the OS select one by the routing table.

Many OS:es supports route load balancing between two routes.
