Wink Transparent Squid Proxy in Ubuntu


I'm mon webmaster/developer and I'm new in Linux. Our office suddenly needs to setup a proxy server. Ubuntu Squid proxy server immediately came as an option for us. The question is: does transparent squid proxy configuration using Ubuntu will have no problem with computers running on Windows OS?

Thanks in advance.. Sorry if this is a very noob question.

Squid Proxy And DHCP Server

Thank you Peter.

It seems like I'm having problem with my transparent squid proxy server. I was able to configure my ubuntu server as a DHCP server but was not successful in giving Internet connection to the clients. My squid proxy and DHCP server is in the same machine.

I followed the instructions for my squid config on this article but with no success:

Below is my interfaces configuration:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
mtu 1492

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet static
mtu 1492

My Router IP Address: Subnet Mask:

I got my dhcpd configuration in:

DHCPD Configuration:

ddns-update-style none;

option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers,;

default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;

log-facility local7;

subnet netmask {
option domain-name-servers;
option domain-name "";
option routers;
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
default-lease-time 21600;
max-lease-time 43200;


Sorry for the long content. Hope this info will help you in helping me in search for solutions.

Thank you.
