[squid-users] Squid with by pass cards

Hi I am trying to implement a squid proxy in transparent mode using a bypass card.
what I  have done so far is set both the eth devices on the bypass card in bridge mode br0 (The third dev eth0 is for maintenance)
the squid is working fine, but try as i might i cant get the traffic to go through the proxy server. (route all port 80 traffic to the squid service and send out again)
would it be better to configure the ports individually eth1 and eth2 and then have all the traffic from eth1 routed to the squid and out from eth2 ?

I am totally lost here..

all the examples that i have seen on the net so far involve
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3120 but the moment i set this up all the traffic tops (i.e. the bypass/bridge stops forwarding packets! ) but if i set the proxy in the browser i can still surf the net.

Any Ideas ?
any one ?

Thanks in advance
