Which is, I think, essentially how the m0n0 handles the VPN as is.
Ideally I don't want the IPcop to even be noticeable... transparent. I
quickly setup a 2 LAN test environment with a squid box on one lan, and
redirected traffic. It works ok. Some lag between interfaces, but I am
blaming that on the poor equipment (namely realtek chipsets). Too many
configuration changes needed though. At any rate, this is not
accomplishing any more than putting in a pfsense box instead and using
the squid package. So, as it stands, I am doing that, but it does not
cache the update packages as I hoped to accomplish with the IPcop
install, but I am already noticing a significant improvement in the
overall bandwidth consumption. I was hoping for a 30% improvement within
a week, and I have already seen 20% in the first two days. Back to the
drawing board I guess. I may toss in an ipcop box this weekend on the
vpn, just to see what happens. Not many users on, so if the tunnels go
down, I won't have a target on my back.
