Thanks for you help.
But I am sorry you may mistook my meaning entirely.
I do not need the http proxy and cache functionality of squid.
I just wander that if the squid can receive the client SSL connetion( or packages)
, decode it and tranfer the data with no SSL to the server as a transparent layer.
squid using SSL may be like this:
http data
But I wonder if the squid can act like this
my application data
Thanks very much.
