Hi all
i got some confusion here
in transparent mode squid box acts as a packet forwarder and accepts all

if the client browser does not send a host -header will squid be able to
identify the origin server and proxy the request to it
the origin server ip is anyhow present in the IP packet dest IP address field
isnt it
in this case of a transparent proxy is there any need in the first place for
squid to do DNS lookups on the client requests ..this should save some time for
the DNS lookups isnt it ??? coz when the packet comes to squid the DNS lookup
has already been done by the client browser isnt it
