Will somebody help me on how to allow sites with non-default ports to be connected through squid.

Secondly how to configure IM such as yahoo with voice to connect through squid.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

squid is a proxy for port 80 and other ports like ftp 21. If you want it to proxy for port 8080 then you need to add that port to the squid.conf file.
