Can't Authenticate to squid proxy from XP machine

I am having to setup a proxy for the Office its been a while so please bare with me. I hope Maybe I am missing some thing easy :-)

I have setup and Installed squid but when I try and setup a windows xp SP2 FF3 user I am having problems Authenticating to the proxy. A user name and password box is displayed but the user is not Authenticated and the login pops up again. I am sure I am entering the correct user name and password.

root@office:/etc/squid3# htpasswd /etc/squid3/squid_passwd NSWUSR
Re-type new password:
Updating password for user NSWUSR
This is my config file

logfile_rotate 5
emulate_httpd_log yes
server_persistent_connections off
forwarded_for off

http_port 8080

auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid3/ncsa_auth /etc/squid3/squid_passwd
acl ncsa_users proxy_auth REQUIRED
auth_param basic children 5
auth_param basic realm NSW2077 Office
auth_param basic credentialsttl 1 hours

acl user1 proxy_auth NSWUSR

tcp_outgoing_address user1

acl manager proto cache_object

But still can not login rejects the user each time

root@vps:/etc/squid3# find / -name ncsa_auth
find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /proc/sys/net: this may be a bug in
your filesystem driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlie

Running out of ideas Did I miss any thing :-) silly

Have you checked Squid's access.log (cache.log and store.log might have info, but not as likely) for more info? I'm suspicious of an upper case username, but can't find any docs here to support that (you could also try qldusr since we're probably going to win State of Origin in a few months time )?

Sorry that's not more useful...

Is there any way to control the remote_port in Squid ?

I'm not sure, did you mean this (from the Squid docs)?
Option Name:	htcp_port
Requires:	--enable-htcp
Default Value:	htcp_port 0
Suggested Config: 	

#htcp_port 4827

	The port number where Squid sends and receives HTCP queries to
	and from neighbor caches.  To turn it on you want to set it to
	4827. By default it is set to "0" (disabled).
