Yes, you're right. Squid is sitting between the users (people out in Omaha,
or Japan, or wherever they may be) & the web server.

Squid / Firewall
Internal Network ----- Web Server
=========== =========

Squid lives on my external box. It's a RedHat 7 box acting as a firewall,
running IPCHAINS & IPMASQ. I'm the only person on the internal side of the
network, so I have no interest in running squid as a traditional proxy
server. What I want to end up having it do is to capture all traffic to one
of my web servers, limiting the bandwidth users get from that server.
