I've gotten an OK - for them to not inspect traffic coming from the 
squid server - as long as I verify it's setup is secure and only allows 
traffic for webservers to certain urls. (it's not me they don't trust - 
it's the websites running on those servers :)

As far as I understand the routing example - it only works when I've 
setup a router (that bypasses the normal gateway, and acts as a router), 
or a setup where squid is on the same box.

What setup should I use to route packages from clients (when I want to 
capture/redirect on clients) to squid server on same LAN ?

the routing example didn't seem to work :(
