I have installed Squid as proxy server,By default it block the yum install and mails(gmail,yahoomail,etc).How to unblock this functions.i'm using fedora13 as OS

The 'normal' squid install doesn't block stuff like that by default, so either you've installed more than just squid or something is odd about the way it is configured – RobM May 30 '11 at 6:10

First of all, you have to make sure who is blocking you. Squid by default does not block specific sites/URLs.

If you are sure you are getting blocked because of squid, you can look for the acl, http allow and http deny configuration options. There are many options that can check for IPs, URLs, domains, etc. Of course, you need to have super user access to modify the configuration if needed.
