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):

How Reproducible:
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
prefer_direct off
This are most important configuration lines in squid.conf file.

2. Try to access https site over this proxy

Actual Results:
Don't get any response from squid

Expected Results:
Connection to https sites should work wery well.

Additional Information:
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 
2.4.STABLE2-4.i386.rpm   ??
You may also want to look for advice on the squid-users@squid-cache.org mailing 
list:  http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-1.html#ss1.9

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?
