[SQU] How to test if CONNECT method in proxy is working???

I suspect my incorrect proxy configuration with Squid to use the CONNECT
method, could someone throw on light on this mystery ...

My current squid.conf (extract) as follow :

http_port 3128 8080

acl all src
acl manager proto cache_object
acl localhost src
acl SSL_ports port 443 563
acl Safe_ports port 80 21 443 563 70 210 1025-65535
acl Safe_ports port 280 # http-mgmt
acl Safe_ports port 488 # gss-http
acl Safe_ports port 591 # filemaker
acl Safe_ports port 777 # multiling http
#Default configuration:
http_access allow manager localhost
http_access deny manager
http_access deny !Safe_ports
#http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports
http_access deny CONNECT !Safe_ports

http_access allow CONNECT
http_access allow all

http_access deny all
icp_access allow all
miss_access allow all

I have reaffirmed that port 3128 and 443 are on LISTENING mode via netstat

I make a small test (not sure if this is right) ...
root@localhost /root]# telnet localhost 3128
Connected to localhost.localdomain (
Escape character is '^]'.

on the other hand,
[root@localhost /root]# telnet localhost 443
Connected to localhost.localdomain (
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

What could it be that I am missing out??? Thanks for any help in advance.
