Cannot connect to Secure websites through proxy


I've setup squid 2.6 on RH enterprise5 with squidguard 1.2.1
Everything is working fine, but when I try to connect to a secure site I get the following message.

"While trying to retrieve the URL:

The following error was encountered:

Connection to Failed
The system returned:

(111) Connection refused "

Port 443 is open on my firewall and these sites worked fine when I was running on squid 2.5

Does anyone know how to enable SSH to authenticate to those sites?

below is part of my squid.conf file

acl all src
acl manager proto cache_object
acl localhost src
acl LAN src
acl HOST src gp0003
acl DIRECT src # Parent squid server
acl to_localhost dst
