Thanks Henrik

now my authentication pass properly when the squid working as proxy.
I tried to use authentication when proxy working as reverse proxy and
in acc mode.
Again squid advertise for authentication and shows the uname and
password menu
but it doesn't accept the username and password.

Username and passwords working properly when we use the squid as proxy
but not in reverse mode.

Did I miss any thing during compile or in configurations.
My squid version is 2.5Stable4.

ncsa_auth as shipped with Squid-2.5 and ealier only understands NCSA
style
password files

username:crypt_hashed_password

It does not use the same format as /etc/shadow.


NCSA style password files are created with the htpasswd command.
Depending
on version you may need to use a option to tell htpasswd to use the
crypt
hash (newer versions default to Apache style MD5).



If you really really want to authenticate against /etc/shadow then see
the
PAM helper for Squid. Don't forget to read the manuals.
