Additionally in the case of TPROXY, it may mean you misusing the tproxy

A dedicated TPROXY-only receiving port is REQUIRED, and MUST have the
'tproxy' option set.

Since vivian t first contacted the list about this I've been
investigating the current state of the three softwares involved and
updating the Features/Tproxy4 page.

The CentOS patching how-to is only applicable for older kernel or
iptables versions and we can't/don't/won't provide any support if you
have trouble.

What I'd suggest people coming at this now is to pull the official
bundles of Squid 3.1, kernel 2.6.28, and iptables 1.4.3, and follow the
instructions in the wiki feature page.

If you have any troubles with those, please first experiment to see if
you can find a solution.

PS: even this advice will likely be outdated soon as iptables advances
towards a release.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE6 or 3.0.STABLE13
   Current Beta Squid
