MAC address filtering will only work on the same LAN segment. The mac
address for your IP will be the gateway of the squid server if you are
connecting remotely.

I currently use IP addresses as my access restriction; only my home IP has access to my squid server. I was thinking of transitioning to MAC addresses for ACL purposes, so that I can use my proxy when I'm on the bus or at work. Are MAC addresses any less secure as an ACL restriction than IP addresses?
