Re: [squid-users] Put all port 80, 443 http https rtmp connections from openvpn through squid?

But once the tunnel reaches the OpenVPN server, you can direct port 80
and 443 traffic from it via the proxy server can't you?
Once it gets to the OpenVPN server (where you would also have the proxy
server), isn't it decrypted?
Lots of companies have VPN tunnels and then route web traffic through a
proxy so it must be possible somehow.
