Is this possible? Transparent Squid question
Ok - got a sportsman bet here.
My linux/networking skills r kinda too low for this although I'm gonna try to set this up if possible.
So, I know you can and there's lots of tutorials out there for transparent proxying with a squid if the squid is on the same box that is acting as the gateway.
What I want to do is have the squid transparently proxy on the same subnet as the end user's machines but not on the gateway.
So HTTP packets go
From client machine to gateway -
gateway forwards all port 80 traffic to squid box
which then forwards out of the gateway to a cache_peer on port 8080
Traffic comes back in to the gateway which would first go to the squid box then back to the gateway and out to the client machine.
So in a nutshell, is it possible to change the standard squid transparent set-up and have the squid NOT on the gateway machine???
