squid proxy through another proxy


Is there a way to make my squid server work via another proxy server? I don't see anywhere in the squid.conf file and I though that setting up the main proxy server in gnome-networking-preferences would forward everything wanting internet through the primary proxy server.

Example:

client --> proxy-server2:1234 --> proxy-server1:8080

The reason that I'm doing it is that my clients are within a small closed network, but I want them to have Internet access.

Thanks for the help!

Assuming that the squid box is in the middle there, then i believe you'd have a cache-peer declaration as a parent: http://squid.visolve.com/squid/squid...htm#cache_peer

Thanks Chris for the response. This is sort of what I'm looking for but I can't get it to work. I guess what I really want squid to do go through the same proxy without having to be a parent or sibling. Instead, I just want squid to forward any html request through to another proxy server.

There is a really neat little program that runs on Windows from (http://www.analogx.com/contents/down...work/proxy.htm) and I guess I'm looking for something like that for Linux instead of something as robust as Squid.

Any other ideas?

you can easily use iptables to transparently proxy on a local machine. just put a rule in to redirect output port 80 traffic to the proxy. couldn't tell you what that would actually look like, but it's simple stuff.
