For FTP you specify the userid and password as part of the URL. See
RFC1738 for the gory details.


I have never used Cute FTP so I don't know how well it operates with
HTTP proxies, but from the error it looks like it is not sending the
correct URL to Squid but instead a URL for anonymous FTP. See your
access.log file.
