i have Squid 2.7-STABLE7 configured as a reverse proxy/accelerator towards our web server(s). At present Squid is trying to resolve hostnames in the requests it receive in order (I think) to find the right web server to contact.
However, I'd rather Squid forwarded ALL requests for those pages it does not have in cache to an Apache server residing on the same node (say, 127.0.0.1:81), without attempting any address resolution. Is that possible?
Please note that I don't want to alter /etc/hosts.
