Pidgin Not Connected through Proxy

Hi all,

i have some problem with configuring pidgin on my Centos 5.2 Machine..My proxy server is Redhat 5 and squid is listening on 3128.I have removed all firewall rules.No firewall is running now.I select http proxy in pidgins "advanced settings" as my proxy ip and port as "3128".When i am trying to login via my yahoo mail id i got the error
"Could not establish a connection with the server:Access denied: HTTP proxy server forbids port 5050 tunneling."
Then i have added tw entries on /etc/squid/squid.conf
acl Safe_ports port 5050
acl Safe_ports port 6667

But still i got the same probelem.Can any one help me?Advanced Thanks
