I've been trying to configure squid to work like this thread* suggested but have been unsuccessful. Teamviewer's vpn is something like 7.xxx.xxx.xxx and it has its own adapter (not part of the local network). How can I get squid to allow/recognize teamviewer through its default http port 3128?

*How to route internet connection through teamviewer's VPN?

  • Configuring Squid is quite tricky, but I got the same results using Redirproxy. Try using VPN's assigned IP address instead of "hostname" when configuring the proxy server on the "client" computer. – Jonas Dec 2 '13 at 13:22

If by "use the internet at home" you mean simply using the home's external IP as a proxy, you'd be better off using Window's built-in VPN connection. That way you need no extra software.

  • Something else to remember is: "VPNs are basically secure Internet routers." One way to use them is to connect to a machine (like your work) that hosts a number of internal-only subnets which you can now reach through the VPN's provided routes, with all "other" traffic being routed elsewhere. Another way to use them is to send all of your computer's traffic "through the pipe" so that it emerges onto the Internet from someplace else as though you were "someplace else." You can do either or both, but be very sure that you've conceptualized what scenario you want to wind up with. – Mike Robinson Mar 13 '20 at 19:19
