Slight note in port redirection

This I noticed when using Linux/ipfwadm to do transparent proxying. If
you have a web server running on port 80 on the same machine, you need an
explicit rule in the Input rule set to allow traffic coming in. This
should come before the redirection rule, so that requests made to your web
server will not be redirected. The redirection throws Squid into a loop
and eventually hangs.

Hope this helps,
