Hi, i'm currently testing Tproxy mode feature

I have an issue that the local Squid proxy claims look back to Myself

I have set this


tproxy 80 port 3128

The rule catch correctly computers requests but Squid claim

2015/03/29 01:29:01 kid1| WARNING: Forwarding loop detected for:
GET /server-status/?auto HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost.touzeau.biz
Via: 1.1 routeur.touzeau.biz (squid/3.5.2-20150327-r13784)
Cache-Control: max-age=2592000
Connection: keep-alive

It seems that when the proxy catch request and wants to forward requests 
to Internet, it is catched by the tproxy rule too and looping.

How to set the rule in order to prevent catching proxy requests itself ?

Best regards
