Hm. Can the tcp_incoming_address be set to
to have Squid listen for incoming connections sent
to ANY ip address on port 80 when running in
acceleration mode, to act as a transparent
proxy without needing the ip firewall/NAT
address translation portion?

It's been a long day, and my brain is fried, so I'm
sure I'm way off base, but it would seem that you
could simply bind to, listen for any incoming
connection to port 80, and be done with it, no more
futzing with ipfwadm...
