squid authentication and transparent proxy ?


I am using squid authentication with ncsa_auth module in version squid2.6.STABLE6.

Now when I implement Transparent proxy authentication does not work,and in log file I found the message like authentication does not supported in accelerated mode

Is there any way so I can use squid authentication and Transparent both at a time.

From my squid.conf

# WARNING: authentication can't be used in a transparently intercepting
# proxy as the client then thinks it is talking to an origin server and
# not the proxy. This is a limitation of bending the TCP/IP protocol to
# transparently intercepting port 80, not a limitation in Squid.
