Thanks i have done this and created a password file. But i am facing another given in the doc i have given

acl password proxy_auth /...../passwd
http_access allow mygroup password
http_access deny all
miss_access allow mygroup password
http_access deny all

But it is not asking for password when people in this group start
accessing it a bug? or i have done anything wrong?

Does squid support ftp proxy? [not ftp:// , but a ftp port
which can serve as proxy for normal ftp, just like winproxy
supports ftp proxy]

Thanks for the clarification.
