Squid is the solution:

1. Linux: automatic/transparent www-proxy combined with firewal

Is there anybody who knows, how to automatically redirect http-trafic
over a Linux-Masquerading-Firewall (LocalNet->isdn) to the Proxy-Cache
on the Linux-Box (squid on port 3128). This would have the effect, that
there is no need to set a proxy-Server in all the browsers.

the current active ipfwadm-statement (masquerading) is

  ipfwadm -F -p deny
  ipfwadm -F -a m -S localnet/24 -D isdngate/32

if I something like try

  ipfwadm -I -a acc -P tcp -S localnet/24 80 D 0/0 80 -r 3128

I get an error like

  "ipfwadm: sockopt failed: Invalid argument"
