Re: icp_port from squid

In simple terms it means if you have two squid servers i.e. multiple site web farm with a squid in front the icp_port is the port they will talk to each other upon for maintaining the cache state. If you only have a single squid then set to '0' to diable it.

P.s. if you do have multiple squid don't use the standard 3130 port use a different port number.

Hope this helps,
