Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know Squid by default blocks all traffic access but I'm not sure what settings to edit if someone could take a look at the settings I have attempted to make changes on and let me know if I'm on the right track ...here is a snippet from squid.conf
One question though…squid still refuses all of my traffic for some reason here is my current http_access config…any suggestions?
# http_access deny all
#Recommended minimum configuration:
# Only allow cachemgr access from localhost
http_access allow manager localhost
http_access deny manager
# Only allow purge requests from localhost
http_access allow purge localhost
http_access deny purge
# Deny requests to unknown ports
#http_access deny !Safe_ports
# Deny CONNECT to other than SSL ports
# http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports
here is the error I get when I redirect all firefox traffic thru the proxy...
The requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://192.168.1.1/Forward.htm
The following error was encountered:
* Access Denied.
Access control configuration prevents your request from being allowed at this time. Please contact your service provider if you feel this is incorrect.
Your cache administrator is webmaster.

Yes I did correct the previous post, but instead of the system correcting the post it created an alternate post for which I was reprimanded by the web admin for this site...you should advise them to take the "edit" feature from newly submitted posts as it doesnt work properly.
