Great! But I tried and it didn't work.
I setup separately Coova (smooth setup, working good) and Squid Transparent
(like this: http://www.lesismore.co.za/squid3.html), and both works fine.
So I launched Coova, with HS_POSTAUTHPROXY= and
HS_POSTAUTHPROXYPORT=3128: authentication works, but it seems that packets
does not pass through Squid... (if I sniff I can see packets to,
but Squid access.log remains empty, and no site is opened...)
I tried both with and without squid redirect rule
(iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT
--to-port 3128,
I tried also with iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i tun0 -p tcp --dport
80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128)
but I had no success.
What do you suggest?
Thank you.
