View Full Version : [ubuntu] Transparently redirect to proxy

July 7th, 2011, 02:02 PM
My company requires a proxy server that requires a manual configuration to use. Many Ubuntu apps, however, do not respect the HTTP proxy settings.

Is there anyway to modify my local firewall settings to automatically forward IP traffic to the company proxies in the same way a transparent proxy might work?

Would I need to set-up my own local, transparent squid proxy which itself forwards to the company proxy?

Please advise, TIA...
