For peerings to work between accelerators you must enable

Also, make sure to set up proper access controls to only allow access to
your servers, not proxying in general (required as soon any of
httpd_accel_uses_host_header or httpd_accel_with_proxy is enabled, as
both can be used to ask your accelerator to contact any other host)
