Re: Re[2]: [squid-users] reverse DNS by squid when using parent proxy

If you want to deny proxying then this has to be done outside Squid
(usually in the browser configuration). Squid has no control of what
reaches Squid, only how Squid will forward the request once it has
been accepted by Squid.

But I am not sure I understand yoru setup fully. What DNS servers are
you using, and how do the the relevant parts of your squid.conf look
