Im talking under correction here, but to forward "live" requests, to
internal IP address, is a function of which squid does not care about.
Squid ONLY cache information ....

For your redirect/forward problem, if you need to redirect the url with the
proxy server (EX: Client request -> redirect -> webpage), then you might
have to use redirectors with your proxy server - Check the squid home page

If this is a general redirect/forward, and you even want people on the
internet to redirect to this internal IP address (even if they are not using
the proxy server), you can do it with ipchains... - Check the
IPChains-HOWTO... You might also need additional software, I am not sure
about redirecting with IPChains, but I know it can be done... (IP Forwarding
also needs to be enabled ?)
