Hi yall,

This is the clearest answer I've found to my question but I'm on a
much newer version than the original author and I can't tell if
anything's changed since then.

Can I have Squid send HTTP/1.1 requests when it receives HTTP/1.1
requests?

I've visited the table; I'm not a web developer, I just want a simple
yes/no answer. And I can't understand why such a simple question
isn't a FAQ item.

I'm running Version 2.6.STABLE14 built for SPARC/Solaris 10 from
sunfreeware.com.

Thanks,
Jake
