[squid-users] Automatic redirect to https

Hi folks,

I've set up an reverse proxy ("accel mode") using Squid Cache: Version 
3.5.20 which works fine. It listens on port 443 speaking https to the 
client and https with a self signed certificate to the server. I'm happy 
with that.

Now I want to redirect every client which asks the proxy at port 80 
using http to port 443 using https.

Using url_rewrite_program doesn't work for me, so I tried ACLs:

http_port 80 accel vhost
acl redir localport 80
http_access deny redir
deny_info 301:https://myfqdn.com/sub/ redir

After restarting squid, the proxy doesn't deny the request at port 80 
but I had access to my webserver via http! Can someone please tell me 
what's wrong with my ACL? I don't get it. Thank you very much!

King regards
Marc Werner
