Hello Amos!

excuse me for my misunderstood: i was referring to this for the "null module".
Is it right?

Can I make Squid proxy only, without caching anything?
Sure, there are few things you can do. 
You can use the cache access list to make Squid never cache any response: 
cache deny all
With Squid-2.7, Squid-3.1 and later you can also remove all 'cache_dir' options from your squid.conf to avoid having a cache directory. 
With Squid-2.4, 2.5, 2.6, and 3.0 you need to use the "null" storage module: 
cache_dir null /tmp
Note: a null cache_dir does not disable caching, but it does save you from creating a cache structure if you have disabled caching with cache. The directory (e.g., /tmp) must exist so that squid can chdir to it, unless you also use the coredump_dir option. 
To configure Squid for the "null" storage module, specify it on the configure command line: 

Thank you!Francesco
