squid -k reconfigure

I have Squid caching proxy server deployed on Rackspace based server in UK. This server has four IP address. I would like to change outgoing IP addresses from default 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.4. How do I change proxy server outgoing IP address under Linux or Unix operating systems?

I have a line as follows in squid.conf file. My sever is hosted in a cloud:

acl verizonfios src 1.2.3.4

My ISP will force an IP address change every week or two. I would like to replace them with a new IP

acl verizonfios src 4.5.6.7

How do I replace the line starting with “acl verizonfios” with new IP address using sed and ssh?

I made some changes to the /etc/squid/squid.conf file and issued the command /sbin/service squid restart. However, this command takes way too much time to restart the server. How do I tell squid to just reread the config file and apply new changes under Linux operating systems?
