I'm not sure if these also apply when using shorewall. This is based on the following assumptions:
 
* iptables server is the gateway server
 
* squid is listening on port 3128
 
* local network is connecting to the server is 192.168.0.0/23 and already has basic nat rules set up
 
* iptables server is 192.168.1.7
 
 
It took me a while to realise that in addition to redirecting the traffic, the squid port needed to be opened before it would work:
 
 
echo " # open access to proxy - squid - port 3128"
 
$IPTABLES -A open -p tcp --syn --dport 3128 -j ACCEPT
 
 
echo " # Transparently forward http traffic to Squid"
 
$IPTABLES -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 ! -d 192.168.1.7 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128

I know that it redirects to this page, but wouldn't it be clearer to move this page to "Router" and just state that it is acomplished by using a NAT'ing firewall? I would be willing to put in the work. --[[User:Arcanazar|Arcanazar]] 11:53, 30 July 2009 (EDT)

Move ?

I know that it redirects to this page, but wouldn't it be clearer to move this page to "Router" and just state that it is acomplished by using a NAT'ing firewall? I would be willing to put in the work. --Arcanazar 11:53, 30 July 2009 (EDT)
