Hi Amos,

the PoC is for a project involving malware inspection, a personal
project. I tried to chain 2 Squids as part of solution.

The AV perform the check on the wire before actually allowing Parent
Squid to get hold of it.
I.e. Client --> ... ... -> Parent Squid --> AV (inspects HTTP, it it
is 'infected', do a "TCP Disconnect" as seen on Sysinternals Procmon)
--> Website
*There was no "TCP Disconnect" for 'clean' pages.

From what I observe when the client is directly connected to the
Parent Squid, I got the following message in Parent.
I am OK with this message in Parent, but how can I let the Child also
know that and display similar message when Parent got it instead of

The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL:

The following error was encountered:

   * Read Error

The system returned:

   (10054) WSAECONNRESET, Connection reset by peer.

An error condition occurred while reading data from the network.
Please retry your request.
