Squid Proxy Server


Hi

I want to be able to set up a linux squid proxy server and bridge in effect for a college project. The problem i have is that the proxy parent i wish to connect to is using a Novell Border Manager Server in which you have to log into

Any ideas how i can make that work?

The other problem i have is that the two networks this server is between are running on two completely different subnets. This means in effect i need to setup a bridge. I thought that ip tables would be most appropriate but again not sure how it can be done.

Any ideas?

any help would be very much appreciated!!!

other info

Using Ubuntu Server 6.10
Pentium 3 1000MHz
64 MB RAM
10 GB HDD

Once again, thanks

Sorry, Blackfish, but I'm not sure about the authentication question. On the network issue, in my mind, the best way to handle the two different subnets would be with two nic's and iptables. Set one nic to handle the "requesting traffic", the other will have the gateway (sounds like the Border Manager address).

A single nic can be dual-homed (assigned to two networks).

For more info on iptables and nat: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/IP-Masquerade-HOWTO/

Best to you and your project...

Many thanks for your help! i did try this but it didn't workout.

but i decided to give IPCOP a go which has done the job very nicely and my college are impressed with the first design and are looking to take it on as a full time server
