Seems you have not..

See the Squid FAQ entry on running Squid inside a firewall.

Also seems you are running Internet Explorer. To get meaningful error

friendly error messages". By default IE thinks it is best to keep
the real error cause secret from the users...

What is the point of such restrictions on messages posted in public
