Transfer-Encoding is a standard HTTP hop-by-hop header. Hop-by-hop
headers are meant for the immediate recipient (Squid in your case),
rather than the final or "end" recipient (Client in your case). Squid
must not forward hop-by-hop headers (but may add them as needed, which
may look like forwarding to an outside observer).

If you describe the actual problem you are having (in addition to this
technical detail), somebody on this list might be able to guide you
towards a solution.

Good luck,
