Um, do I understand correctly that you want to allow access from the
internet to a machine in your client's LAN? In that case, squid is indeed
the wrong solution.
Maybe have a look at sslwrap+redir, or stunnel, which can run on any
machine in your DMZ and forward incoming connections to the internal
machine, adding SSL encryption to make it more secure.
