[Chilli] Squid transparent proxy on same server

Thanks Isidor, this looks great.

How does it work? ( I could not find any further details on coova's website
or wiki). Does chilli auto redirect the post-auth user received packets to
the defined proxy server? Is it only port 80 destination traffic? Thus if
squid is installed on the same box as coova (and apache), then and
3128 would be valid and correct entries?

I'm using Coova v1.2.1 and have set the config file proxy settings to 3128 but am not seeing any client activity in squid's access.log.
I know squid is working properly, because if I define the proxy in a client
browser then squid's access.log is recording the relevant entries.
