Name

wais_relay_host

Synopsis

The Wide Area Information Service (WAIS) is an obsolete protocol that predates the Web. This directive is largely historical. Its purpose is to make Squid forward all WAIS requests to another proxy, perhaps a dedicated WAIS gateway. You can accomplish the same effect with ACLs and cache_peer_access.
