Let me explain our environment...we were running as http://mail.xyz.com. Our
DNS would resolve to IP a.b.c.d and the external firewall will translate
this legal IP to private IP - e.f.g.h which was Squid Reverse Proxy (Squid
V2.4). The squid revserse proxy was accerlerating exchange server OWA IP -
i.j.k.l. There is another firewall between Squid reverse proxy and exchange
server/OWA. This firewall allows traffice between these two on port 80. It
worked perfectly.


http://mail.xyz.com -->>Firewall-1 NAT -->>Squid Reverse
proxy -->>Firewall-2 ---->>>> OWA
IP a.b.c.d -------->>> NAT --->>>>>>> IP e.f.g.h ------------->>> Port
----->> IP i.j.k.l


Now we want to encrypt the mail.xyz.com. For this I have installed RH-9,
Squid V2.5-STABLE4, OpenSSL-0.9.7. The squid.conf has following config -

http_port 8080
https_port 443 cert=/usr/local/ssl/cacert.pem key=/usr/local/ssl/privkey.pem

acl it_net src e.f.g.0/255.255.255.0
http_access allow it_net

1. From Squid proxy when I say https://i.j.k.l I can acces the mails.
2. But from anywher else including proxy server if I say
https://mail.xyz.com or https://a.b.c.d I get error URL: / cannot be
retrieved. Why the IP is getting stripped?

Regards,

Rakesh Kumar Jha
