Problem with Varnish.

It could have been you didn't define the backend for the request in sub vcl_recv:
sub vcl_recv {
  set req.http.X-Orig-Forwarded-For = client.ip;
  if (req.url ~ "\.(jpe?g|png|gif|ico|js|css|zip|CSS|mp3|wma|wmv|avi)(\?.*|)$") {
    unset req.http.cookie;
#### backend definition for this request####
  set req.backend = default;

hey, here is my vcl file:

I commented out "sub vcl_fetch" because I got error while starting varnish.

backend default {
.host = "";
  .port = "81";
sub vcl_recv {
# add a unique header containing the client IP address
set req.http.X-Orig-Forwarded-For = client.ip;

# we're only handling static content for now so remove any
# Cookie that was sent in the request as that makes caching
# impossible.
if (req.url ~ "\.(jpe?g|png|gif|ico|js|css|zip|CSS|mp3|wma|wmv|avi)(\?.*|)$") {
unset req.http.cookie;

#sub vcl_fetch {
# if the backend server adds a cookie to all responses,
# remove it from static content so that it can be cached.
# if (req.url ~ "\.(jpe?g|png|gif|ico|js|css|zip|CSS|mp3|wma|wmv|avi)(\?.*|)$") {
# unset obj.http.set-cookie;
# }

Hey guys,

I am fairly new to the Varnish, I installed Varnish as the frontend to nginx, everything works fine föruton a strange problem that I have never encountered before when I used only the nginx;

I have an index page that links to the archives of this dress in two different ways:
Link 1:<>
Link 2:<>

Here comes the problem, with Varnish does not link two work, the browser simply can not access the page and after a few seconds, nothing appears in the browser and the address bar shows the address that a page can not be reached, the address that appears in the address bar is:

Configuration of the Web server is and Varnish 80.

I don't use htaccess.

I would be grateful if you help me with this problem.
