I am using Centos 5.8 and using squid 3.1.I am trying to achieve transparent proxy along with another parent proxy server IP.
So far I am able to configure the peer_cache settings in squid.conf using christian schenk's blog:http://www.christianschenk.org/blog/using-a-parent-proxy-with-squid?
"cache_peer 10.3.0.1 8080 0 no-query no-digest never_direct allow all"
I can browse internet by configuring browser and point it to either my squid's proxy ip or parent service providers proxy IP but cannot browse without setting either one of them under LAN settings. As for setting up transparent proxy I tried iptables as mentioned under standard transparent proxy procedures but still no luck.
Any word of advice on how to get transparent through parent proxy as I cannot access internet without setting up the browser and therefore not a transparent proxy.
