web squid proxy behind a hardware firewall NAT device?
 
I'm looking to setup a web proxy using squid.
I already have a hardware firewall NAT'ing device that all the connections go through.
I'm planning to install the squid web proxy on a VM (single nic) and place it behind the hardware firewall as below:


internet -- modem -- Firewall --switch--squid proxy (192.168.10.100)
--client workstation ((192.168.10.200)
(client workstation is connected to the same switch as the squid proxy)



And on the client workstation's Internet Explorer: Tools->Options->Connection-Lan Settings and check the box for "Use a proxy server for your LAN then type the address of the squid proxy (192.168.10.100) and set the port to 3128. Check the box for Bypass proxy server for local addresses.

Would this work?

Seems like a simple configuration, should work fine, you are on the same LAN as the proxy server.

Bye.
