Hello Joe
Sorry if this all basic.
I have attached sysctl.conf file and my iptables rules are

/sbin/iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 80 -j
REDIRECT --to-port 3128
/sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -p all -o eth2 -d 0/0 -j MASQUERADE

I am using 2x100 mbs intel card with e100 driver
