Question Please Help Squid Proxy

Hi All

First i will describe My scenario and what i have to do.
i have a simple LAN with an internal IP range of 192.168
and external range of xx.yy (Class C) 16 Public IPs. Now what i presently do is that I make a Server give it a public IP, make it a proxy by installing any third party software and all users are directed towards this proxy for excessing internet. But the problem in this is that all Public IP holders never go through this proxy, rather they bypass the proxy and directly go through the router.

Now i Was planning to switch over to Squid Proxy. So is there any way, i can configure the Squid so that all Public IP holders will also go through this Proxy Server and all firewall rules, delay pools will be applied to them as they are applied to all internal users.

Thanks in advance

be sure to plan your project, I can't see the reason of 16 public IPs while you have a simle LAN with reserved IPs 192.168. Normaly in this scenario you should have just one public IP, the router working on his way.

Actually what happens is that some of Top Officials in the company want that they should have direct access to Internet and they wanted to bypass proxies as they say some features like msn voice chat , yahoo voice chat doesn't work behind proxies. I wanted all of them behind the proxy even having a Public IP.

I just moved the thread to Linux - Networking. It's a better place to ask questions (and get answers).

All these Public IP address holders are going thru the modem which is connected to your proxy right?
