The easiest way would be to use a client like Putty to ssh into the server and issue the command tail -f on the squid log file:

1. Download Putty: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html
2. SSH into your server
3. tail -f /var/squid/logs/cache.log

That would give you realtime view of the log. You could also vi or cat the cache.log.
Also the location of cache.log may be different.
