Do you really need squid for that?
What is your ultimate goal of using squid?
- Content Caching
- Content Filtering
- Applying traffic ACL's
- Other??

If you don't need caching in the picture then you are using the wrong tool..
When we will have an answer to what you want to achieve we might be able to help you towards the right solution.

Subject: [squid-users] make large amount of IPv6 IPs for use?

Right now I have a config file that enables Squid to have an incoming connection based on an IPv4 address and based on the connection port a IPv6 address is used. Below is the relevant part of the config file.

## designate acl based on inbound connection name
acl user1 myportname 3100
acl user2 myportname 3101
acl user3 myportname 3102

## define outgoing IPv6 per user
tcp_outgoing_address 2001:19f0:9014:073e:0000:0000:0000:0000 user1
tcp_outgoing_address 2001:19f0:9014:073e:0000:0000:0000:0001 user2
tcp_outgoing_address 2001:19f0:9014:073e:0000:0000:0000:0002 user3

I want to add thousands of IPs like this and it would take too much time and it would be error prone. Is there any better way of achieving this? By giving ranges maybe?
