Squid cannot accept native FTP. So in that regard you are out of luck.

For gatewaying to authenticated FTP servers Squid works fine. Minimum
requirement is a squid 3.1 series release though. Squid will take Basic
www-auth credentials out of the browser request and gateway it into the
FTP login sequence.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.14
