Does anyone have any idea what I need to add or what I have done wrong in
seting up squid as a transparent proxy ? Using the following setup I can
access web pages but they are not cached.

I have 2 ethernet cards in the machine :
1 is ed2, the other is vx0
ed2 is set to IP Address
vx0 is set to IP Address

I have a PC set up as a client on IP with a gateway set to

I am using a Pentium 200 box
I am using Free BSD 2.2.5
The system is set up as a gateway.
I have recompiled the kernel with the following options:
 options IPDIVERT
I have added the following line to the /etc/services file :
 natd 6668/divert
I have run the following:
 ipfw -f flush
 ipfw add divert natd all from any to any via ed2
 ipfw add pass all from any to any
 natd -use_sockets -same_ports -unregistered_only -dynamic -interface ed2

Thanks in advance
