Hi all,
I have configured squid and its up and running.Problem is each time users try to put in their username&password pair for authentication,they are denied access to the cache.I configured squid.conf with the following params

auth_param basic program /usr/local/squid/libexec/ncsa_auth /usr/etc/passwd
acl auth proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow auth

and I created and used htpasswd to put in users in /usr/etc subdirectory which i created with owner root and group squid.
I also get the following reports from access.log
985706399.967 2 192.168.35.11 TCP_DENIED/407 1362 Get
and this
WARNING: authenticator #1 (FD 6) exited
WARNING: authenticator #2 (FD 7) exited

Does anyone know what the problem may be?
