Re: [squid-users] Starting squid 2.4, ipchains & ip forwarding

If using the standard Red Hat initscript to start your Squid (located in
/etc/rc.d/init.d) just turn it on using chkconfig, or the menu-based
ntsysv tool. IPChains also has an iniscript, though I usually use my
own. You'll want it to run in runlevel 3 or 5 depending on the runlevel
your system normally runs in.

IP Forwarding can be configured in /etc/sysconf/network on RH6.2 or in
/etc/sysctl.conf on RH7.

Many folks also start everything in rc.local. There you just append
everything to the end of the file just as the commands are entered on
the command line.
