This is from squid, not squidGuard. I believe you have a problem
with your access control lists.

   10.2 How do I allow my clients to use the cache?

   Define an ACL that corresponds to your client's IP addresses. For example:

         acl myclients src

   Next, allow those clients in the http_access list:

         http_access allow myclients

These lines go in /etc/squid/squid-squidGuard.conf or /etc/squid/squid.conf,
depending on how you started squid (the first one is for the squidguard
server, the second the standard squid).
