You need the following in your squid.conf
and a rule something like this for ipchains:
ipchains -A input -j REDIRECT 3128 -s 192.168.x.0/24 -d any/0 80 -p tcp
(replace 192.168.x.0/24) with valid internal network.
I was having problems getting this to work for a while - my mistake was to
put this rule after the -j ACCEPT for all internal networks so it never
hit the redirect rule. Oh well, at least it's working now.
You'll also have to recompile the kernel with CONFIG_IP_TRANSPARENT_PROXY
on. This requires turning on the experimental switch.
