squid - transparency
« on: March 26, 2005, 07:40:41 AM »
Hello Linux team!!!

My distro is redhat9.0, I have installed squid done transparency,  

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128.

1) but in squid, i have allowed some url to access and remaining all sites is banned, this is not working even transparent proxy is active, when I browse sites it is accessing all sites, wat to do for this ??
when i go to each system and configure proxy setting in internet explorer like this [ proxy server port 3128 ]. it will work, i mean the banned list and the access list.

2) we are having a Online Software, I want to configure this software not to authenticate to squid, it should directly connect to the internet. how to do ??

Let me know how to do........
Thanking you,


Offline Ricky

Hi.. Sathish. . but if you don't mind I have seen this post b'fore !!

Do your post got lost when the site was hacked ?

For your first question.. It is clear that all traffic is not getting directed squid.

to confirm that open a website in client and then see access.log , if thre is entry for that then problem must be somewhere else.

For second queston:
Is that software is running on every client or specific client as if on some clients you can give them direct access.(although in transparent mode it is little confusing) .
And if that software is using some other port then 80 then I think it will use direct connection already.
