Unhappy Problem with setting up a Dante socks proxy server

I encountered a problem with setting up a Dante socks proxy server in our network.

The proxy server is behind a router that connects to the internet via ppp.
IP addresses between router and the proxy server's eth0 interface are: and up

There is a secure zone behind our proxy servers eth1 interface, with IP-s: and up.

I set up firewall to allow all connections from eth1 and to deny all incoming packets from eth0.
I set up default route in our proxy server so that itself can see internet, but clients from the secure zone cannot browse internet through proxy.
I tried to be more permissive in danted.conf, to check out if it works well, but I was'n succesfull

Here is my last configuration:

logoutput: syslog

internal: eth1 port = 1080
external: eth0
method: none

user.notprivileged: nobody
user.libwrap: nobody

# Allow everyone
client pass {
from: to:
log: connect disconnect error

pass { from: to: }

I was curious so that I installed and configured a Squid Http proxy, for testing purposes, and it works well!!!

But we need not only a http proxy, but a socks proxy...

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
