I would like to setup my system as a transparent proxy and firewall for
the rest of my PC's. Is this possible as I already have a router that
all of the systems use to connect to the internet(which is also my cable
modem, so I can't take it out of the loop)?
Can't you put your suse box between your cable modem and your router?
OK, thanks for the help, but that would work for the CAT5 connected systems
not for the wireless systems.
If your LAN connected to your router (i assume wireless plus cat 5),
then you connected the WAN port of your router to your suse box running
squid and SuSEfirewall2, that would work for all clients.
To do that I would have to buy a new Access
Point as that is already included in my router. I had this setup before I
went wireless but was using smoothwall. I don't want to buy anymore
You just need to adjust which machine connects to the internet. BTW,
the suse box would need 2 NICs, and both the router and the suse box
would need to NAT. HTH
