That depends on what you want to do with it. For now it does not have to
be, but may change later as you change what you are doing with the proxy.

What OS and Squid version are you using on the Squid machine?

(Hint: "uname -a ; squid -v" should tell you that)

The ping and tracert tools do not use the browser config settings. So
are not going to produce meaningful results at this point.

Check the /etc/resolv.conf settings of the Squid machine have been setup
correctly by DHCP.

If that looks correct to you. Then please provide details of what "cant
access internet" looks like. What error message is showing up, where it
is showing up, etc.
