--excerpt.
Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients, supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single, non-blocking, I/O-driven process.

In other words you cannot do, SMTP, POP3 proxy.  And even FTP proxy is done via HTTP protocol.

Basically, you will have to install the package that comes with RH, or you can download precompiled binaries from these links;
http://www.squid-cache.org/binaries.html

If you opt for the RH standard build, make sure you ran "squid -z" the very first time to initialize the cache.

I hope this helps.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:
