Setting up Squid as transparent proxy on lan.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I can find how to configure Squid easy enough but the proper method of inserting it between the router and the rest of my lan confuses me. Is this the proper method to insert a squid proxy behind a router to the lan. My goal is basic transparent caching + replacing apt-cacher-ng with a proxy that isn't limited to specific purpose and will cache packages for x amount of time.

DHCP is handled by a linux server, all computers in house are linux.

Forward http and https ports to squid proxy server ip from router. (which ports to which ports on server?)
On isc-dhcp-server set gateway as squid proxy ip.

Is that it?

They can be inline but dont have to be, general set up is:
* Add a dns name for WPAD (Windows proxy autoconfig)
* Deploy proxy settings VIA dhcp for any mac devices too
* Install HTTPS CA ublic key on the hosts that you want to intercept for SSL-Bump
* Add default drop outbound
* DNAT HTTP to the proxy
* Set Proxy settings on all clients

After this, all the trafic should be routed through Squid transparently
