Probably the same fault I did in the beginning. What you put in the
accesslist for this should not be your client machine, it must be your
Squid-server! This means you make the ACL give you permission to look
at the server, not letting your client in. This also means that EVERYONE
will be allowed to look at your Squidserver's cachemgr.cgi and without
a password because the password is only used when shutting down Squid
remotely. This must be fixed with access control in your webserver.
In the cachemgr.cgi-menu you only give the name or number of your
Squid-server and what port Squid runs on. No password.

Read the Squid-FAQ, the last part is devoted to cachemgr.cgi and is
very helpful.
