Re: [squid-users] acl-specific http_port

Thanks, I think, I'm getting there. Here is what I did:

http_port 80 # To be the only one :)
httpd_accel_host virtual # We need to support multipl vhosts
httpd_accel_port 8015 # This is where one of servers listens;
                                # this server will NOT grok hostname in
                                # the request, BTW
httpd_accel_with_proxy on # We need this too
acl S urlpath_regex ^/dufus/|^/$ # Only the URLs, which start
                                # with /dufus/ or the main page (/)
cache_peer localhost parent 8000 0 no-query # Apache listens on localhost:8000
never_direct allow S # Never fetch /dufus/ and / directly
cache_peer_access localhost allow S
cache_peer_access localhost deny !S

This seems to be working, except that squid responds with ERR_DNS_FAIL
for its own hostname. A simple nslookup on the same machine resolves it
perfectly, and it is also listed in /etc/hosts (with IP). Any
ideas? It was working fine as an accelerator for just Apache before...

Thanks. Yours,

Well, tclhttpd server treats such requests as requests for proxying...
