Proxy traffic through firewall
I would lyk to get some help with configuring a firewall to forward squid traffic. I'll explain my setup.
I have a firewall with iptables configured for allowing access to specific services /IP in my network. The default policies for most of the chains is DROP. My proxy has a live IP and hence the proxy was directly connected to the internet. Now i need to route my squid traffic through the firewall so that the firewall becomes the single point of access/exit. That's why I have a firewall in place. Proxy has squid configured. Http port configured for squid is 8080. Firewall has iptables configured. Snort is also present. No specfic rules has been configured as far as the proxy traffic is concerned. The internet is yet being accessed on account of the live IP present on the proxy.
Any efforts to route the traffic through the firewall hasn't helped me out.
I know Linux in bits and pieces and have learnt much of it through R&D when I needed to get something done. This proxy rerouting seems to be beyond my reach
