I have a pfSense box that I'd like to add squid to to use as a proxy that I can use remotely. I have installed squid, but I can't figure out what firewall or other settings I need to change to get it to work.

The only specific configuration I can think of is allowing any IP to connect to your squid proxy. In "Proxy server", you have the "Access control" tab. You can put and see if that helps.

If it doesn't help, you're going to want to create a specific rule in your firewall to allow access to squid. This should look like allow any to squidIP on tcp squidport on interface WAN.

That should do the trick.
