Hi Ernesto

This has been dealt with several times on this list. My suggestion was
a) Allow HTTP traffic outbound thru the m0n0wall only for the Squid box.
b) Enable port forwarding on your Squid box.
c) Configure Squid for transparent caching.
d) In your m0n0wall's dhcp configuration, create a custom
<gateway>x.x.x.x</gateway> entry pointing to your Squid box so that it
becomes the default gateway for your LAN clients.
