Mikrotik and Squid = Transparent Proxy

In business networks there is a big usage of  transparent proxy also home networks can use it also.

Thanks to that kind of server we can monitoring a lot of meta data and value information from client network and also prevent a lot of virus infections.

Lets assume that our server (192.168.0.10) have Ubuntu or Debian operation system installed on it and the lan network is 192.168.0.0/24.

On server there is also software firewall (iptables) which we will use to forward connection using commands below:

Next, on Mikrotik router we will add firewall rules to forward chosen clients (via list SQUID_CLIENTS) to server with squid proxy:

This way we finished configuration of proxy server which will capture web traffic and don’t need to be configure on client side.
