This is how you configure a transparent caching proxy server (squid) on Linux.
Make sure you have the required package installed
- Squid-stable : Use the standard package manager to install squid. On rpm bases systems use the command
rpm -q squid to find out if it is installed
- Iptables : Usually installed on most linux systems
Edit the squid config file:
# vim /etc/squid/squild.conf
We will be setting up a Transparent Caching web proxy server
