What happens when you try a simple "telnet somehost 80"? Try putting
some simple "echo Hi there" server via inetd.conf on the squid machine
and see if you get it. If you don't get it then the problem must with
the the router original route mapping. If you do get it then try to
connect to port 80 in the outside world from the proxy machine and see
what happens (all these tests should be done with squid out of the
game, of course).
