Hi, squid do allow https proxy but through tunneling which means it can't block sites those are on https.
You can block https sites using iptables on the machine where squid is installed.

try :
Code: [Select]
iptables -A INPUT -s gmail.com -j DROP
iptables -A OUTPUT -d gmail.com -j DROP

Above will drop all incoming and output connection to gmail.
