We checked for the configuration correctness
$ varnishd -C -f /my/varnish/config/file
We started the Varnish service
$ /etc/init.d/varnish start
We tried accessing the services via Varnish.
It failed saying there no http service running at Varnish machine:port.
BTW, from the checks performed… the maximum character backend name working for the configuration was 44 Character long.
