Thank you Henrik, Yes I agree as I stated in a reply to Amos this is not an ideal or a good design but I need to make it work. I do have SQUID configured as forward proxy but I think I need to setup some routing policy (iptables) to make everything go directly through our servers as they are acting like a proxy but not a caching proxy and can not handle CONNECT method. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated and I have looked and tried the Config example in the FAQ & WIki on best regards, Guin ----- Original Message ---- From: Henrik Nordström <> To: Quin Guin <> Cc: Sent: Sat, May 15, 2010 3:17:57 AM Subject: Re: [squid-users] http CONNECT method with fwd proxy to content server on same subnet fre 2010-05-14 klockan 07:17 -0700 skrev Quin Guin: > I have a remote server sending a HTTP CONNECT to my server but my > server can't handle an HTTP CONNECT.

You should not require anything special. Just Squid configured as a plain proxy and allowing this remote server to access it. Note that you SHOULD NOT configure Squid as a reverse proxy. CONNECT is a proxy method. But as amos mentioned, why is that remote server sending your CONNECT requests in the first place? Probably better to address the problem there. Regards Henrik
