Squid 2.6 not accessing https sites

Hi all,

I am working in RHEL5. I have installed squid by default rpm. It is squid 2.6. I want to use Transpaerent Proxy. I have enabled it by using
http_port 3128 transparent and made two ACL like acl mynet src and acl wan src And below "INSERT YOUR OWN RULES" I have written http_access allow mynet and http_access allow wan. Where mynet is my LAN Network and wan is my broadband IP. Then I have given squid -z to make cache. After all this these things I have started squid. But, though I can access http sites from my lan, but can not access https sites like,, etc. Selinux is disabled and Iptables has been flushed. Please help me to solve the problem. I am feeling very much helpless.

Are you letting it through?

acl SSL_ports port 443
http_access allow CONNECT SSL_ports

Don't forget to restart squid after making changes or if using webmin, you can quite often just hit Apply Changes.

Also, just as a matter of readability, I get rid of the tons and tons of commented lines in the squid.conf
# Trim down the squid.conf
sed -i.bak '/^$/d; /^#/d' /etc/squid/squid.conf

HTTPS problem

Hi There

I have the same problem, installed Squid2.6 on RH enterprize5 with Squidguard 1.2.1
On my other servers I have Squid2.5, they do not have the same problem.

Did you manage to sort out this problem yet?
Seems like you need to enable SSH , but I can't find anything to assist me.

Please advise
