Ok. It seems that's not a squid problem.
For the working
I got really a lot of messages in cache.log, for the not working
ftp sites I got exactely nothing.

On the squid server I launched
# tethereal | grep -v -i ssh | grep '192\.168\.1\.111'

the active lan card is only one, I was connected in ssh to the
squid server, so I filtered all the ssh packets, and the IP of the
last grep is that one of the PC from where I was trying to do ftp.
This PC is a WXP Pro Machine with IE6 (all last patches applied).

Then I launched ethereal on that PC and started capturing
with the filter src || dst,
it is I captured all the packets which source or destination
was the IP of that PC.

Then I made an ftp request from the PC. Here IE6 is
configured to connect to the proxy server
(it is the squid server) on port 3128 for all protocol
(http, https, ftp, gopher).

The results are that on the squid side I saw nothing and on
the PC side I saw
- an ARP broadcast request where the PC
asked for the MAC of the (it's the Cisco router
that is the default gateway either from all the PCs, either from
the squid server)
- the reply from the router
- 3 attempt from the PC to connect to the ftp IP address

I didn't see the request to the name server because
I already tried to connect to such site and maybe the
PC was caching that reply.

Now I'm not more happy, because I don't know how
to solve that problem. Any idea?
