You don't need a bump if the client is configured to use Proxy2 as a proxy.

Why do you "have to bump it"?

So, client is connecting to Proxy2 with a proxy request - Proxy2 should then
make the request and return the content. What's the problem?

Sorry, I'm still trying to work out not whether it's posible, but why it's

A client configured to use a proxy has been able to make SSL/HTTPS requests
for years - way before Squid's bump feature became available.

It's only when the proxy (Proxy2 in this case) is configured to intercept
traffic in transparent mode that you can't proxy HTTPS requests and have to
handle that traffic some other way, but that doesn't appear to be the
situation in your case:

 - the client is configured to use a proxy
 - Proxy2 is not running in transparent intercept mode

so again, what doesn't work, which means you need to introduce Proxy1?


Tinned food was developed for the British Navy in 1813.
The tin opener was not invented until 1858.
