I have an RTSP proxy. Unfortunately real player needs http access to start the rtsp stream, so

i need to provide a http proxy for .ram files only. (no http, asp, php etc.)

How is this possible with squid?

    Hi Wibble,
    Try the following rules:

    acl ram urlpath_regex -i \.ram$
    # allow requests for ram file
    http_access allow ram
    # deny all other requests
    http_access deny all
