- Red Hat Enterprise Linux
- I want to configure Squid to forward all requests to another proxy and access the ssl website.
- Edit /etc/squid/squid.conf, add the parameter below:
cache_peer <Parent_proxy_IP> parent <port> 0 no-query default acl all src 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 http_access allow all never_direct allow all
- The above parameters will let squid daemon know about a parent cache and squid can not connect directly to origin servers.
- By default squid always contacts the origin server to satisfy https requests and it must be configured not to do this if you wish https requests sent to another proxy
