Before completing the steps described in this section, make sure that the Squid service is installed and configured according to the instructions provided in Appendices 1 and 2.
To configure the Squid service for HAProxy:

icap_service kwts_req reqmod_precache icap://<IP address of the server with HAProxy>:1344/av/reqmod
icap_service kwts_res respmod_precache icap://<IP address of the server with HAProxy>:1344/av/respmod
- Restart the Squid service. To do so, execute the command:
service squid restart
Configuration of the Squid service for HAProxy is now complete.
