I am running a Linux firewall (IPcop) to bridge two networks. Hosts on network A have to use a proxy server in order to get online. This server runs a transparent proxy (squid) configured to use the proxy needed to connect to the internet as an upstream proxy, therefore meaning all the hosts on network B can connect to the internet without the user having to configure a proxy address.
The problem is that HTTPS also has to go through the upstream proxy, which I'm told can't be proxied by my server transparently because of security issues. This means that hosts on network B can't currently access HTTPS sites.
The page simply will not load - I think this is because the rest of the network is required to use a forced proxy else the same problem results, so what I'm trying to do is redirect the HTTPS traffic through said forced proxy
