 Please consider an upgrade to 3.1.18. There are a lot of important bugs
 resolved since 3.1.4.

 The default in delay pools is not to limit. You must has an explicit
 "delay_access allow" line defining what gets collected into each pool.

   delay_access allow all

 Erase the "acl all" line in squid-3. It is defined by default to a
 different value. This will silence several warnings.

 So all logged in users have unlimited access?

 These deny rules are placed below the allow rule letting ALL logged in
 users through.
 This means that for all machines on the Internet which can supply one
 of your users insecure plain-text logins:
  * the safe_ports rule preventing viral and P2P abuse relaying through
 Squid has no effect
  * the CONNECT rule preventing blind binary tunneling of data to any
 protocol port through Squid has no effect.
  * you maxuser policy has no effect.

 And what are you expecting to arrive over port 80?
 That port is reserved for reverse-proxy and origin server traffic.

 It seems like you intended reverse-proxy or interception but have a
 wrong config for it.

 Drop this QUERY stuff.

 Funny domain name. I hope that is obfuscated for the post not in the
 This is the domain name used in URLs your clients get told to use for
 Squid error and FTP page icons. If it does not resolve back to this or
 another Squid your clients will be facing page load problems on those
 generated responses.
