web squid proxy behind a hardware firewall NAT device?

I'm looking to setup a web proxy using squid.
I already have a hardware firewall NAT'ing device that all the connections go through.
I'm planning to install the squid web proxy on a VM (single nic) and place it behind the hardware firewall as below:

internet -- modem -- Firewall --switch--squid proxy (
--client workstation ((
(client workstation is connected to the same switch as the squid proxy)

And on the client workstation's Internet Explorer: Tools->Options->Connection-Lan Settings and check the box for "Use a proxy server for your LAN then type the address of the squid proxy ( and set the port to 3128. Check the box for Bypass proxy server for local addresses.

Would this work?

Seems like a simple configuration, should work fine, you are on the same LAN as the proxy server.
