No. Binding to is the default, listen on all available

Transparent proxying using ipfwadm, ipfilter or another network
translation tool is a different issue. Here you have to force the host
to accept ANY destination as local... If using ipfilter then Squid needs
to be listening on the interface where the traffic is redirected, if
using ipfwadm then Squid needs to be listening on The
default is fine in all cases.
