Transparent Proxy squid 2.6

Good day,

Squid it’s ok with proxy setting, but i need transparent proxy, with http_port 3128 transparent. and iptable - t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128
What it’s wrong?

Thanks for your time

There are a couple of assumptions in that iptables rule:

  1. The requests are coming in on eth1. So if the browser is on the machine itself, this won’t work.

  2. The machine is on the path to the outside world, i.e. it’s a router.
