[squid-users] Reverse proxy and TUNNEL to same cache peer

Thanks Amos: yes agree that I should have told forward proxy.
When I remove the originserver option from cache_peer, the forward proxy is
working so which means the rewriter is not precluding from happening. Does
that give any clue to us?
Moreover the reverse proxy is in next hop to the client and not in
internet. Time being, we are ok to have insecure channel between client and
squid. Do you have any sample config that that uses a parent proxy to do
both forward/reverse proxy? Or do you see my config is good enough for this
