Could you send readable text in future please?

FWIW, you seem to be confusing "client" with "user". Client is just
where the message is comming from when it arrived into Squid, not the

There is the X-Forwarded-For header mechanism which DG can use to tell
Squid where it got the message from.

How to receive it is documented in:

The DG config detail is:
