Just a note, I have observed a few problems with transparent proxies.
Because they can not use the name of the host, some sites break. There
was one in particular which used the same IP for two different web sites.
The web browser reported to the server what host it was going to, but
Squid wasn't forwarding these headers (i'm guessing they are in the
headers) ans so the user would always get the same web page over and
