eBox as http proxy
 
Hi,

I am trying to configure an eBox to act as an http proxy but having trouble using that proxy on client computers to browse internet.

The ifconfig on ebox returns the following:

eBox141:~# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0c:29:ee:64:f2
inet addr:10.45.48.108 Bcast:10.45.255.255 Mask:255.255.0.0

eth0 is on the internal lan with the client from which I want to access the internet
eth1 is can access internet all right.

The ifconfig on a client returns

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:46:58:7F
inet addr:10.45.48.102 Bcast:10.45.255.255 Mask:255.255.0.0

RX bytes:1297106653 (1237.0 Mb) TX bytes:738158694 (703.9 Mb)


I configured the Firefox on the client to use eBox's ip address/port in the proxy settings but I still can't get on the internet.



Side note 1:

eBox is on a vmware workstation 7. It is eBox 1.4.1
eBox has two virtual nics (above) - one is NAT (eth1) and the other is bridged (eth0)

Side note 2:
the client is on vmware ESXi 4.0. It's an openSUSE 11.2.

I may have found the source of the problem. I'll post it later.

Well. With the eBox, the changes saved don't mean they are automatically enabled. I just had to enable HTTP proxy module in the Modules Status and it all worked just fine.
