This isn't a feature to be disabled or enabled via squid.conf.

What sort of "access denied" error do you get? Is it a squid error page
or a "friendly" error from Internet explorer/netscape? If you are using
internet explorer please try turning off friendly error messages in the
advanced configuration options.

If it's a squid error page, please copy the error and mail it to the
list. If it's an internet explorer error page you may be encountering a
bug with squid.

I do see a problem _with my setup here_ (Note I am running bleeding edge
unstable software and thus my test may not be indicitative for your

testing (the client program is very very useful!)
$ /usr/local/squid/bin/client.exe -p 8080
HTTP/1.0 302 Moved Temporarily
Server: Microsoft-IIS/4.0

X-Cache: MISS from lifelesswks.local
X-Cache: MISS from
Proxy-Connection: close

It's a recommendation from the WWW org that the 302 message have a body
explaining how to access the new location for legacy browsers. Your
browser should re-request the new location automatically. I am using a
much newer version of squid than you are, and I don't know everything
that's changed. It is possible that you have hit a previously unknown
bug with squid not closing the connection properly when there is no body
in a 302 response.

This would cause internet explorer to "hang" and then eventually return
a locally generated error of some sort.

Get back to me about the actual error page, and we'll take it from
