Is there a way to view/read the response body squid forwarded to one of the clients?

It would be useful to know why. If it is debug, the responses below are probably adequate (tcpdump/wireshark). If not...? – Tom Newton Dec 21 '11 at 19:27

If you are talking about getting a live view of the response, you can simply use a network sniffer like tcpdump on the proxy server and filter using the client IP address.

On a per basis the response body would not be saved on the server so you would have to catch it with wireshark or tcpdump. I don't think it is stored there but check the log files. and maybe your config to see if you can up the log files to include more info maybe a debug mode.
