I would have used the later option, using something like this:
 cache_peer parent    8080  0 default no-digest

I have some similar problems on one of the schools in Aure, but they
(Umoe ikt) are working on the problem.

The fun part is that https always work, http sometimes work, and it
happens on only one of the school. Using one of the other schools inside
the school network of Aure as a parent proxy, it always work.

It could have been funny to see if you could have used one of "my"
servers as parent proxy for your school, but I guess it will be closed
in the firewall that I dont have control over.
