Sorry for a few more questions, but it doesnt work:
grant access in squid.conf like this?:

acl peter src host-ip-number/net-mask
http_access deny manager !peter

the host-ip-address is the ip-address of my computer connected via
ethernet to the squid-server(same as www-server)

But the message :Sorry, you are not currently allowed to request

looks like squid is looking for a file called info. My www-server, an
apache 1.1.1 generates an info under which only I can
access which gives me apache server infos. Perhaps there is a conflict?

Any idea?

thanks Peter
