Squid config question


I use RedHat9 as my small office network server. I use squid. I have public ip, 24 hours internet.
Is it possible to avoid the proxy and one of the network machines get direct internet connection?
Thank you!

What does that mean? Perhaps a little more information on your setup would be helpful. Right now the machines connect through squid to get to the internet, and you want to have them all connect to the internet directly?

TLDP has information and a howto for IP-Masquerade. That is probably what you are looking for if I understood your post correctly.

Conditions for "one of the network machines get direct internet connection":

1.) must have access to a gateway with NAT and ip forwarding (your RH 9 server perhaps?)
2.) must have some type of DNS resolution (ISP or BIND running on the RH9 server)
3.) remove proxy settings in web browser
4.) squid not be running in transparent mode

Some more information about my network.
I use RedHat9 as a small office server. I have public ip, 24 hours internet connection. I use squid as a proxy server. The linux default firewall is disabled. In the server machine there are 2 NIC. One of the internal network, the other is for the internet connection.


I want to connect directly to the internet only one of the computers (and normaly the server)

Is it possible?
How?
Thank you!

Yes it is possible to access the internet directly without proxy..but its depend on ur server firewall environement....I meant ur server firewall should define NAT..... IP Masq
