    I am currently having a problem with Squid-1.1.6 and proxy_auth.
I have read all of the faqs and am still having problems making it work.
I did the following:
    1. created an account for the squid proxy server called squid
    2. Ftp'd and untarred the source
    3. Did a ./configure --prefix="/home/proxy" <----Where I wanted the server to go
    4. edited and uncommented -DUSE_PROXY_AUTH=1 in /src/Makefile
    5. make ; make clean
    6 Changed the cache_effective_user to squid squid
    7 Uncommented and changed: proxy_auth to
            proxy_auth /home/proxy/etc/passwords
    8 Added the acl:
            acl password proxy_auth /home/proxy/etc/passwords
    9. used htpasswd program to generate passsword file with test user
  10. started squid
After starting squid I get the following error in the squid.out file
    squid 97/10/06 14:01:05| squid.conf line 785: acl password proxy_auth /home/proxy/etc/passwords
97/10/06 14:01:05| aclParseAclLine: Invalid ACL type 'proxy_auth'

    I am running a Redhat 4.2 system. Does anyone have any clues? I have followed the instructions, but it just does not work.
