"transparent" is a confusing word. Particularly more so since you say
you changed from "transparent proxy" to one of the forms of "transparent

To clarify what you were meaning:

Was your "transarent proxy" setup using?
  NAT intercept?
  TPROXY intercept?
  Basic auth SSO?
  Digest auth SSO?
  Negotiate/Kerberos auth SSO?
  or an external ACL helper doing out-of-band auth tests?
