    [SOLVED] Squid connection


    I have a NAT running with Suse 11.3. SQUID 2.7.STABLE6, SquidGuard: 1.4 Berkeley DB 4.5.20: (July 1, 2010)

    I am setting up a transparent proxy on the NAT.

    If I set the proxy in the browser, SquidGuard will block blacklists and allow the rest.
    If I have no setting in the browser, Squid blocks everything. - it gives an " Invalid Request" error
    so Squid is running, SquidGuard is able to be used, I am able to port forward http requests
    but Squid does not allow internal network passage through,

    I do get the visible host name in the requesting browser so I know I have connected.

    I have the default settings at the moment:

    acl all src all
    acl manager proto cache_object
    acl localhost src
    acl to_localhost dst
    acl localnet src ( this is my internal test network )
    acl SSL_ports port 443
    acl Safe_ports port 80
    acl Safe_ports port 21
    acl Safe_ports port 443
    acl Safe_ports port 70
    acl Safe_ports port 210
    acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535
    acl Safe_ports port 280
    acl Safe_ports port 488
    acl Safe_ports port 591
    acl Safe_ports port 777
    acl CONNECT method CONNECT
    acl shoutcast rep_header X-HTTP09-First-Line ^ICY.[0-9]
    acl apache rep_header Server ^Apache

    http_access allow manager localhost
    http_access deny manager
    http_access deny !Safe_ports
    http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports
    http_access allow localnet
    http_access allow localhost
    http_access deny all

    I notice with iptraf that there is no DNS request when you use the proxy setting in the browser where there is a request made when you do not use the proxy. The DNS server is on the outside of the network, not on the NAT. Is this something I should be looking for?

    I am reading the squid.conf and checking on Google but I do not see what I am missing.

    Can anyone point me to a possible solution?

    thanks for your time,

    thanks to this site :

    Transparent proxy with Squid | Christian Schenk

    they post on making a transparent proxy server and were kind enough to include that for ver 2.6.xx what is needed.

    All I had to do was add the word "transparent" to my http_port line.
