        Yes it is possible. You need to compile it into Squid. Change
directory to the squid source (src/), edit the Makefile. Remove the #
that is in front of -DUSE_PROXY_AUTH=1, then recompile squid.

        Then, in the squid config, set the proxy_auth tag. It looks like
this: proxy_auth /location/of/password/file

        in the password file, put in, for test purposes:


        then you login in using testperson as the user id and testpassword
as the password. Once you get that working you can then use Apache type
password files, where the password is encrypted using htpasswd.
