I have one server with 3 interfaces (3 physical lan card), which are connected to 3 different routers. Each router has a different subnet, i.e. the 3 interfaces of server belong to 3 different subdomains:
eth0 192.168.1.42 #default interface eth1 192.168.11.42 eth2 192.168.12.42
I have installed a squid server on the server with minimal configuration, and it indeed works fine with web browser. Here is the squid.conf:
acl all src all acl lan src 192.168.0.0/16 http_port 3128 access_log /var/log/squid3/access.log squid hosts_file /etc/hosts http_access allow lan http_access deny all
Now, I would like the squid server to use one particular interface (eth1) instead of eth0 to send out the packets (because that router has openvpn inside). And after some research, I tried with the following:
However, after this line is added, I could not go to ANY place from browser using the squid proxy. After some Googling, some mentioned about SNAT of iptables and ip route, but that seems really complicated, and I am really not sure what I should set in this case.
I tried with
squid3 -k debug, but I only got something like this in cache.log, not sure if it helps:

Any help would be very much appreciated.
