Hi all,

I am trying to use Squid to cache xml feeds from an external domain (outside of my network). I want this to be used by internal scripts, not specifically by users. So currently i have Squid intercepting traffic on port 8081 which then passes requests off to apache and caches anything cacheable. This is fine for caching local files (if a little pointless) but what i actually want to do is alias my apache server to actually call the external domain.

So requests to:
localhost:8081/feed_xml.asp?type=1&search=news

should really call (and cache):
external-feed-site.com/feed_xml.asp?type=1&search=news

I've tried using jesred as Squid's redirector program, but that only seems able to redirect internally.

If anyone's got any ideas i'd be very grateful!

Thanks
Jim
