    SQUID Transparent


    I am using Ubuntu, with Squid (Ver.2.7 STABLE 9) and Dansguardian to provide internet filtering. However I am requring the use of Squid in transparent mode so that users dont have to specify port numbers etc. By following various guides I can get the web browser to work on port 80 (But it has to be manually specified?) If i select no proxy - Nothing works ?

    The following setup has been followed:

    Changed the squid config to: http_port 3128 transparent

    Changed the IPtables: iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080

    Can somebody help me?

    For a true transparent proxy you need to setup your proxy server as a gateway on your pcs network, here is a tutorial:
