Configuration:

With squid version < 2.6 you need to change in your squid.conf this line
#only allow your iis server
acl aclname dstdomain   www.yourserver.xxx
http_access allow dstdomain
#
http_port 80
httpd_accel_host www.yourserver.xxx
httpd_accel_port 80
httpd_accel_uses_host_header on
#for enable some http 1.1 verbs
extension_methods SEARCH PROPFIND PROPPATCH MKCOL MOVE BMOVE DELETE BDELETE

For squid ver >=2.6
#only allow your iis server
acl aclname dstdomain   www.yourserver.xxx
http_access allow dstdomain
#
http_port 80   transparent
