Can't access router from XP workstation on Linux server

My XP machine connects to the internet thru the linux box. It works just fine accept the fact that i can't connect to the router setup page ( and instead get the following message:


The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL:

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.

I figured it is something to do with SQUID settings but I don't know what to setup there.

I found a solution to this problem so I realize it's not a very secure way to handle that.

in /etc/squid/squid.conf I edited the appropriate line to be the following:


http_access allow all
I am sure there is a better, more secure, solution but that's I came up so far
