Redirecting all traffic through HTTP proxy using iptables

Hi all,

I would like to redirect all traffic to a known HTTP proxy my ISP owns and which i have access to it.

Is this possible via IPTABLES?

If yes, could you give me a hint on the rules?

Thanks in advance.

No, you can only redirect HTTP traffic via HTTP proxy, Iptables will not add the CONNECT line that is required forward non-HTTP traffic, and can not redirect IPv6 traffic.

Something like this should work:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-destination


http, iptables, proxy, redirect
