I'm trying to set up a squid proxy server on my Archlinux gateway server at my house using shorewal, but I keep getting an error when I try to visit a web page.

When I try to connect with the REDIRECT rule on I get the message above, BUT if I add the locational of the proxy server to the Network Proxy Preferences in gnome squid works as it should. Any help would be appreciated :-)

I have nearly the same setup only difference I noticed in mine was I used $FW per the instructions found here.
So in the end it ends up looking like this.
COMMENT Squid REDIRECT loc 3128 tcp www ACCEPT $FW net tcp www COMMENT End Squid
$FW comes from my policy file.
$FW all ACCEPT
Thanks! It was all because of the fact that every guide I saw was for an older squid, and I didn't know about the transparent line in my squid config!
Thanks a bunch for the link, its running the way it should now :-)
