thanks for your reply.
Unfortunatelly it doesn't work for me :-(

If I modify the squid.conf this way (replacing userName with martin),
whenever I try to access *any* website I'm asked to authenticate myself on
the proxy. Although I enter my login & passwd correctly, Squid keeps
complaining and doesn't let me through and I also need to enter a
login/passwd if I want to modify my passwd!...

Question A: which passwd is being used? the one in /etc/passwd?
Question B: is there any other solution to solve my problem?

Thanks again,
