Haven't played with it myself, but I was looking at it when I noticed in
bug reports of Kernel 2.0.30 that the transparent proxy in .30 does NOT
work properly. .29 works fine, and users wanting to use it should either
downgrade to .29 or manually edit the bug out by comparing .29 and .30
source. I didn't have the time to edit the source, and I don't want to run
.29 (hardware issues).

Other than that, it should be fine..

If you have any problems, try having a look at the masq mailing list, as
transparent proxy isused with the IP Firewall and Masquerading options
within the kernel.
