Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 57973
Squid doesn't work with config directive cache_peer
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:52 EDT
Description of Problem:
I have squid problem. If I want to configure squid to send requests to
another squid proxy server then i can't access secure site (https). Normal
sites mostly do OK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I want to access https sites. I have tried on several machines.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure squid with
cache_peer proxy.xxxx.sss parent 3128 0 no-query proxy-only
This are most important configuration lines in squid.conf file.
2. Try to access https site over this proxy
Don't get any response from squid
Connection to https sites should work wery well.
If you need more information please contact me at my email.
Other important configuration lines are always_direct and never_direct.
I'm sure it is not a bug with the Redhat RPM as I have been using these RPM's
for many months now in a production environment and cannot replicate this
Have you tried the latest release from
You may also want to look for advice on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing
When you want to work Squid as proxy to proxy connections (cache_peer) squid do
corectly all unsecured (http) connections but all secured (https) connection
goes direct (allways).
Have you checked the new versions of squid?
