Proxy to VPN


Hello everyone


This is the problem:

I've a *nix box (Debian) with two network interfaces.
I want to connect one of the network interfaces to a VPN and the other remain in my local network. Next i want to create a proxy (thinking squid for this) for local network, and redirect all proxy traffic to the interface connected to the VPN.

Is this possible?

I'm hopping someone can point me in the right direction for do this

Thanks in Advance

That depends on what you are trying to achieve. Squid Proxy is primarily used to redirect web pages rather than full internet traffic usage. For that you would be looking instead as some form of routing, by iptables or other software. However for full network connectivity of a VPN as you are describing, I would look at router solutions rather than server solutions.

Hi, thanks for the answer
I already solve the problem by using iptables. That was my first tough, but i'm not used to iptables . But when there's a will there's a way, and iptables is in use

Thanks
