Hi Willy,

(Un)fortunately, the content that will be proxied is very short-lived and can not be cached, so my squids will be set to not cache anything at all. The purpose of this is to truly balance load across several firewalls ;)

The only problem I face currently is coming up with a way to transparently direct my HTTP traffic to the haproxy VIP. The use of an internal hostname--to which I referred initially--isn't going to work for me, so I have to either use fake DNS entries that resolve to my haproxy VIPs. This is not preferable, for obvious reasons.
