Posting of this was kinda prompted by Fred's recent "Transparent proxy
I have a project in mind where m0n0wall will play an important part. A
part of what I want to do is to *not* have a squid box directly inline
with the m0n0wall box, simply to reduce the number of points of failure
in the Internet connection - if I place a squid box between m0n0wall and
the network, if the squid box b0rks, the Internet connection b0rks.
So, what I'd like to be able to do is to have a rule/ruleset on m0n0wall
that redirects all LAN->WAN requests for http/ftp traffic to the squid
server, and only accept http and ftp traffic from the squid server.
This would mean that if the squid box dies, email will still function.
Any clues on relevant rules?
