I really need HELP with this transparent proxy thing
« on: January 25, 2005, 04:36:47 PM »
Dear Ricky,
I'm relatively new to Linux and catching up fast.
I have just installed a Linuz box as primarily as proxy caching server with Squid 2.4 Stable (RH 9.0).
I've been able to successfully configure Squid and my clients (Windows XP/2000) can share the Internet using simple proxy.
Despite using the tips and guidelines you gave in several posts for transparent proxy configuration, I still can't get the clients to connect to the Internet without using proxy or straight NAT.
Also, I am not able to use ftp behind the Linux box.
I found some useful info in previous posts but nothing seems to be coming together.
Please help me here. I really do not know what I am doing wrong.

What info would you need from me to help?
Thanks in advance

are you running httpd on your machine ? may be that is the problem, also you said your nat is fine.

So i think check for httpd first..

Yes, I am running httpd. I don't need it though. I jujst enabled it by default. Should I disable httpd?

Hello Ricky,
I checked thru a couple more posts and found a solution that worked. It was from a website, georgehewitt.co.uk/help/iptables.htm. Then I added the script to iptables to redirect tcp requests to the Squid port. Thanks so much.
