transparent proxy

Finally i setup a transparent proxy on my ADSL line.
It was really easy:

  1. installed the squid port with the WITH_SQUID_PF option
  2. Adapted the default configuration and added the firewall rules according to SquidFAQ
  3. ran squid -z and enable squid in rc.conf
  4. Reload pf and start squid

One thought on “transparent proxy”

  1. I ran a transparent squid for about a year or two, then switched to setting it up non-transparent and instead jump through the hoops required to make automatic proxy configuration (DHCP/DNS WPAD+proxy.pac) work.
    Reason: Even today, some websites are too broken to work right through a proxy, so being able to connect directly on demand still is a must-have. 🙁
