Thanks for the enlightenment. My understanding is that Squid can do  
both forward and reverse proxy. At least it it would seem so since  
that's the way I'm using it. I did not know that varnish cannot be  
used as a forward proxy though. As I said before, varnish is on my  
list of things to investigate since it seems to have a much more  
modern design than squid.
