I have a Rails server that's a bit API heavy and so I want to run a Squid caching transparent proxy, between all port 80 activity, and the real world. However I don't need incoming traffic to go through that Squid proxy. Eg
Rails -> Squid -> Internet Internet -> Rails
I can't imagine this is an unusual setup but I can't seem to find any examples of it online. Following transparent Squid tutorials has just ended in all incoming traffic hitting the Squid proxy and outgoing traffic seemingly going straight past it (though I'm not so sure about that).
ifconfig's output. I imagine it will be relevant to any answers.
