I am attempting to run the QLProxy Virtual Appliance with SSL Bump in a transparent proxy and cannot for the life of me get it to work. I keep receiving "Invalid URL" errors from Squid (version 3.3.8).

Squid config is as follows

acl localnet src 172.16.0.0/12  # RFC1918 possible internal network

The firewall has a NAT rule on it to set to dst-nat all traffic destined for port 80, 443 TCP to forward to the proxy server on port 3128.

Can anyone spot where I've gone wrong?

EDIT : It should be worth noting that I am attempting to do this with a Single NIC on the proxy. The web traffic is redirected via a NAT rule on a MikroTik (which serves as primary firewall) to the proxy, and from the proxy it should go the internet.

If you are using policy based routing to get the traffic to the proxy server then something like the following will redirect HTTP & HTTPS traffic to the right squid ports:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -i eth0 -j DNAT --to 127.0.0.1:3129
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 443 -i eth0 -j DNAT --to 127.0.0.1:3130

If you want to maintain the client's original IP address for squid to filter on, rather than have all traffic's src appear to be the router's IP, then you would need rules like:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s 127.0.0.1:3129 -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 127.0.0.1:3129
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s 127.0.0.1:3129 -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 443 -j REDIRECT --to-port 127.0.0.1:3130
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 127.0.0.1:3129 -j DROP

I'm not sure how well this last approach works with policy based routing to squid. I've only tested w/ squid configured as the network's gateway via DHCP.

In iptables, you need to redirect HTTP traffic to the squid intercept port, not the standard proxy port. You also need to redirect HTTPS traffic to the intercept ssl-bump port.

  • So keep the dst-nat rule on the router that points tcp 80,443 to the proxy on 3128, and create two iptable rules? iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -i eth0 -j DNAT --to 127.0.0.1:3129 and iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -i eth0 -j DNAT --to 127.0.0.1:3130? – DKNUCKLES Nov 30 '14 at 3:49
