I found it now.

The boolean for squid reads:

Allow squid to connect to all ports, not just HTTP, FTP and Gopher.

It is not checked. I'm not sure that I want to check it. I would first
like to know what squid was trying to connect to. The alert did not
tell me that (at least, if it did, i didn't understand it).

Is there a way I can find out which port was being accessed?
Hm. It doesn't mention HTTPS, but maybe that is subsumed by HTTP.
