#  TAG: visible_hostname

#   If you want to present a special hostname in error messages, etc,
#    then define this.  Otherwise, the return value of gethostname()
#    will be used. If you have multiple caches in a cluster and
#    get errors about IP-forwarding you must set them to have 
#    individual
#    names with this setting.


visible_hostname localhost

Root Cause Analysis

This is the bug that will occur when the Hostname is not fully 
Qualified domain Name

How to avoid this Bug

  Change the hostname to a FQDN (eg:: foo.dnsserver.ca)

How to verify

1. edit /etc/sysconfig/network and change the hostname=localhost     
to foo.dnsserver.ca
2. Restart the machine
3. Run the squid -z or service squid restart or start from webmin
