I *may* have at least figured out what the problem is... is defined in the zone file for -
points to the public address. It is also defined in /etc/hosts, where it
points to the real IP of the web server.

Is squid just looping on me? Trying to pull something from the firewall
when there's obviously nothing there for it to get? I've seen no entries in
the access log on the web server, but I had been assuming that was because
the requests weren't going through (due to improper squid configuration).

If this is the problem, I'm worried. From what I've read over the past week
it seems as if squid has real problems pulling info from /etc/hosts as
opposed to the zone file. You at least have to compile with extra
arguments, which I didn't do, and even then it seems like I've seen a lot of
people writing saying they were having problems accessing the hosts file.

If this is the problem, is there a quick & dirty way to make squid read from
/etc/hosts instead of DNS?
