I think I now know what the problem is.
The iptables are set up to route packets going to the server to port 3128
then from there, to squid and then over to the router at 192.168.2.1 on
I was unsure as to why all traffic on port 80 was giving me the router
configuration page but that would make sense. I'll therefore have to
remove the rules and write them again.
I'm still not sure though how I can acess the server internally. It's not
unlogical to think that if this assumption is correct, the server wouldn't
forward all traffic to port 80 over to the router after it had been delt
with by squid.
I'll give it a go today sometime when I have a few minutes.
Thanks again for the suggestions.
BTW, if anyone has an alternative way of looking at iptables -L output I'd
really appreciate knowing about it. I'm unable to make any sense of it's
output. I understand the rules. but what I understand just doesn't match
up to what the list is showing me.
