Exclamation squid proxy administration problem~~~ UREGNT

hi all.

my name is jeff. i have doing some squid proxy setup but it seem that i have some problem with it.

after configure the username and password, i try to log in to the proxy to go to net "yes" it work but with the same username and password it also can log from other computer. the proxy actually allow it to log in... why?

i was hoping that if using back the same username and password login, the proxy itself will not allow the user to do so. how can i configure the security for squid proxy not to accept the same username and password until the user log out?

Your user isn't "logged in" ... your browser keeps your user/password duo and send it to the proxy for EACH request ...
Ex : When you go on you are generating 28 requests ! (one for every page/image/script/etc).
