Worked in squid 4 years back, not sure but u can try below..., u have to block the gtalk port

in /etc/squid/squid.conf file  make acl like below

acl gtalk_ports port 5222-5223
http_access deny gtalk_ports

#service squid restart

If it don't work then i belive u need the port of gtalk using iptables.

Hi,

  Gtalk use port 5222-5223..   It is good to block gtalk in firewall (Iptables) level not on proxy level.. because proxy is not able to completely  block gtalk.
