I want ot make all my users access the internet via Dansguardian running on my server.
I have set up a server running Dansguardian and Squid under FC4. My router is set up to deny all machines on my network access to the internet except the server. I am setting up all my machines on the network to access the internet via a proxy server (i.e. my server). However at the moment they can use port 8080 (Dansguardian) or 3128 (Squid) to get to the internet through my server. I want to make it so as they can only use port 8080.
So I need some sort of iptables rule on the server to do this. I have some sketchy advice that indicates the follwoing should do it but it does not seem to work:
You wouldn't want to make them only use port 8080 really, you'd more need to transparently intercept normal port 80 requests and handle them in your own way. There's some good transparent proxy information here: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/TransparentProxy-6.html but maybe your router is capable of helping you out here?
