acl Safe_ports port 80 21 443 70 210 1025-65535 280 488 591 777
acl CONNECT method CONNECT

Based on what you posted, there's no way to tell. You say first "I am not able to browse internet", then say "through wget its working"...????

You don't say what error(s) you're getting, or what client(s) you're trying from, to what sites. You say your proxy is on FC10...what about your clients? What kind of network setup do you have? Are the clients set up correctly?

Also, in your other thread on here, there are some good posts about how to set up and test Squid...have you gone through and checked them?

Still haven't answered whether or not you followed the links in your other thread here. So I will "guide you" to Google. If you key in "linux squid iptables", you get things like this:

http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-...uid-howto.html
http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-...t-request.html

And what you want to do with the users, counteracts a 'transparent' proxy. Squid is going to have to know WHO the user is, so it can grant them certain rights. So either they have to log in to Squid, or need to have their authentication passed to Squid some other way...but you don't touch on that. Again, I will "guide you" to Google:
