|proxy user with download rights on our delegate server to connect to the
|data center proxy server and from there access the https-site. Our users
|would connect with the delegate proxy server and could not exploit the
|additional rights of the proxy user because the access is restricted to
|this special site.
So you are not bypassing the upstream proxy but automatically passing it.

|Our actual configuration:
| ADMIN="$MAIL" \
| SERVER=http \
| MYAUTH="user:password" \
| $PORT \
| MOUNT="/* https://www.grundbuch-sh.de/egbaks/*" \
| DGROOT="$DIR" \
| PERMIT="$PERMIT" \
| SSLTUNNEL="$SSLTUNNEL" \
You need to specify inserting a SSL filter into the connection with ther
server as this:
