    SSH tunnel through Squid

    Hello. I'm not sure if this belongs in Servers or Networking. I have sshd running on my server, outward facing to the internet. I have an instance of Squid installed. I'd like all SSH tunnel traffic to be passed through Squid, rather than be fetching content directly, mostly due to the bandwidth savings of a caching proxy. Thanks in advance.

    This wont work.
    Squid cannot store that data, because
    a) this is a ssh stream and not http content
    b) it is encrypted.

    Also, it is not a good idea to add a dependency to your logins.
    If squid is down, you might no longer be able to manage this machine.

    SSH has overhead too, since its encrypted and all.
