yes, the http request for digest is heading for 3128 by default. 

But now I become more confused why the Cache Digest is not working at all.
My checklist for enabling Cache Digest: 
1. build option with "enable-cache-digest"
2. cache_peer setting for both proxies, server port and ICP port
3. cache_peer_access allow http traffic
4. veth pair setup for both application 
5. route table configuration for inter-proxy traffic

Plz correct me if I miss anything.
