If the machine is working as a true bridge then the packets will not be
going to Squid. It still needs the routing rules to route the packets
from its bridge interface to Squid, and from Squid to its bridge
outerface. Or for that matter to pass them from the bridge
inter/outerfaces and the NAT system.
