For the information of other (potential) users, I have not been able to get
this successfully work with the Squid proxy on the same server as chilli
(ie. HS_POSTAUTH_PROXY = I have confirmed, via lynx, that squid
works fine for localhost/ connections, but it does not work through
chilli for chilli authenticated clients.

Debug logs showed redirection to squid, but according to squid logs it
(squid) was not receiving the request.

Unfortunately, I'm not development minded enough to know what the problem is
or might be. If anyone has it working in this scenario, I would like to hear
from you if your willing to provide some advice on your configuration.
