    Hello all :)

    Just a question.... I have Squid proxy installed on a ubuntu box here. Currently all my PC's use my ADSL modem as their default gateway... but what i wanted to do was see if it was possible to use the ubuntu box as the default gateway, and have it route through Squid to my ADSL modem...

    Sort of like this...

    PC -> ubuntu box -><- squid -> ADSL modem.

    Cheers.
