But if Squid actually made no attempt to contact the server, then Squid itself had an issue. I do not use SSL-Bump so maybe Squid had some internal error?
> When you say ' HIER_NONE - no upstream server was involved / contacted.' does that mean Squid did not even try to connect to the upstream server or could it mean that it tried to connect and there was no response?
Squid may have attempted TCP connection(s) to servers, but none succeeded.

localnet is supposed to be your LAN network range(s). "all" means entire

None of these rules do anything after the "allow whitelist" rule above
which already let everything from any source, or protocol through to
Also, custom http_access rules need to be ....

... down here after the default port-based security protection.

The Google DNS service delivers a different IP address result in every
lookup for domains which have more than one IP.
It is better to have a local resolver that is shared by Squid and
clients. That resolver can forward to the Google service if you like.
Doing that will protect the proxy from constantly changing domains.

Either use the built-in 'squid' format, or define a custom one with a
new name. Please do not re-define the native format, results are not
what one expects.

You can improve performance by not using a store.log. It is only useful
for debugging cache issues.
