i am sorry for the foul language and my choice of words acid
there is no error in the access log or cache.log
the "dest host unreachable" is what return packets to clients from the server read, i monitored it on WIRESHARK.

is the last line in the access.log
10.168.1.20 is the server ip on the internal network
i have configured the server's mozilla to use proxy and it is doing so perfectly.
do i need to do some kind of packet forwarding from eth0 to eth1 or vice versa for enabling the clients?
