I have a functional natd running an internal private net ( to
a routable one. I would like to be able to intercept all http requests
from the internal net and push it through squid. It looks like this is
possible, but I haven't come across any detailed info on how to do it.

(This is on FreeBSD 2.2.5, BTW.)

I think I'm having a bit of a conceptual loss here...It seems to me that if
you just pick up HTTP, traffic, you have something that looks like


If you pick up this TCP message and push it off on a squid server, you
will have no idea where this request is being made to. How does the xlation
process end up preserving the information (in the header, whatever) of what
you're actually requesting?
