1.  Disable squid on your machine, run a browser and see if you are
able to reach the net. If you are, then check the browser config to
see if there is a proxy configured. If not, then the main squid server
is configured as a transparent proxy. In such a case your squir server
need not be aware by configuration of the main squid server.

2. In case the main squid server is not a transparent proxy, you'll
need to forward requests. For this, see SquidFAQ cache heirarchy
section in http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/CacheHierarchy
