U should use Masquerading

I am assuming that your internet interface is eth0 and internal network ID is

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s -d ! -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

hope this will help You...

I am not using IPTABLES at all in my linux box....

My client PC's are connecting to internet by proxy server.

My proxy server is connecting to internet through my CISCO firewall, in proxy server my details are given like this

IP : -- Linux squid Proxy server ip
GW : -- MY CISCO Firewall IP
DNS : xx.xx.xx.xx

My client machines also having the same GW AND DNS
my client machines browser is pointing to Squid Proxy server)

My questions is very simple,

My Group A people are able to login to MSN through PRoxy
Only my Group B people are not able to login to MSN

I doubt my ACL is blocking..!!!

Even I tried to place
http_access allow msn_hosts msn
before any deny statment...
Nothing is working out.

Enclosed the access.log file for your reference 1 TCP_DENIED/403 1407 POST - NONE/- text/html
