    Are you looking top allow them direct connections to the internet without going through the proxy or just have them pass through the proxy without having the proxy doing anything?

    Then you are going to have to remove the proxy settings in IE.

    Have you found an answer to this yet? I have the same need.

    I know I have to delete the proxy setting in browser, that's what I want.

    All other computers on network would still need to use the proxy setting.

    I have a work laptop and when I bring it home, I have to put in the proxy setting in order to authorize to squid. Then I have to remove it when I go to work.

    So I want to make my laptop (through either IP or mac address preferably) bypass the squid proxy on my home network and have a direct connection to the internet. I wish there was a way to just make a squid exception for a local workstation, but it looks like this will have to be done with iptables.

    I just can't figure out the right iptable entry.

    I suggest you use Firefox with the foxyproxy add-on.
    It allows you to configure as many proxies as you want and disable them from the menu "tools" without going to the preferences window.
    It even even faster than it sounds, give it a try and see for yourself. Since you have Squid, there is no need to lose its benefits.
