Yes I have done it. You either need to adjust the squid.conf file to know
what is going on, or have a send program do it for you (less efficient).

On another note, Linux 2.0.30 Transparent proxy is somewhat broken. You
can only redirect to the same port that the original packet was intended
for. Use 2.0.29 if you need to redirect to an arbitrary port.
