1. Open squid configuration file.
2. create an ACL for your network
3. Allow that ACL to access internet.
4. Restart squid services.
4. Setup net forwarding in /etc/sysctl.conf
5. Configure IPTables to forward rest of the traffic to internet
       # iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o <external interface> -j MASQUERADE
