I have a squid proxy running on on port 3000.

with Squid i am able to connect to internet and browse websites but skype is not connecting even after i specified proxy server in it.

In the skype configuration i mentioned it to use SOCKS5 through host and port 3000.

But still its not working.Port 443 is open in squid configuration. https is working ok as i can access gmail and bank payment sites,but skype can not access its server.

acl Safe_ports port 443         # https

 acl SSL_ports port 443

also tried setting

 acl numeric_IPs dstdom_regex ^(([0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+)|(\[([0-9af]+)?:([0-9af:]+)?:([0-9af]+)?\])):443

 acl Skype_UA browser ^skype

http_access allow CONNECT numeric_IPS Skype_UA

IPTABLES is set to accept all

Squid isn't a SOCKS proxy, it's an HTTP proxy. –  mgorven Oct 25 '12 at 0:10
