is anyone doing Squid transparent caching on AIX?

Hi all,

I am trying to set up Squid as a transparent cache on an AIX box. I am
wondering if anyone else out there is doing the same thing, and if so, how
are you getting your AIX box to accept the redirected packets?
From the FAQ, section 17, the problem I'm facing is:

"2.Get your cache server to accept the packets. You have to configure your
cache host to accept the redirected packets - any IP
     address, on port 80 - and deliver them to your cache application. This
is typically done with IP filtering/forwarding features built
     into the kernel. On linux they call this ipfwadm. On FreeBSD and other
*BSD systems they call it ip filter or ipnat; on many
     systems, it may require rebuilding the kernel or adding a new loadable
kernel module. "
