Having not got past the testing stage, my VCL file comprises only the
lines I origianlly posted, the rest is all default. Here it is again for

  backend test01 {
    .host = "";
    .port = "80";
    .connect_timeout = 10s;
    .first_byte_timeout = 15s;
    .between_bytes_timeout = 2s;


  sub vcl_recv {
    set req.backend = test01;
