I have a Squid/Dansguardian proxy server that successfully works when
the client web browser is manually configured to use the proxy address:port.
What I want to do is configure a transparent proxy server, presuming I
wouldn't have to manually configure browsers.
My LAN environment diagram:
This is a home network environment with a cable modem, wifi router,
client web browsers, and I have added the proxy server as a virtualized
For the proxy server I have two virtual network cards on the same subnet:
eth0 192.168.1.14 (gateway and the proxy address)
Is it possible the proxy server can intercept traffic from the clients,
when the clients have direct access to the internet router? I don't
understand how traffic is "intercepted" in this diagram.
Do I need to change something on the router?
How do I configure for proxy transparency?
I've read some configurations, but they were confusing, or out of date,
or specialized without much explanation.
