Is there away to get Squid3 to cache certain file extensions for an extended period of time? For example, I'd like to have .zip, .rar, and .iso files cached for 2 weeks by default.

Try to add this line into your squid.conf and reload the config.

refresh_pattern .*\.(zip|rar|iso) 2880  0% 2880 override-expire
