As said earlier Squid does not really care how a server gets it's
content, only how the server responds.

To help you diagnose this further some additional information is

* What happens more exacly? Any error messages shown?

* Anything interesting in cache.log?

* What is said in access.log when it fails?

* If there any obvious differences in the microsoft reverse proxy logs?
