Will squid bypass my firewall?



  • Will squid bypass my firewall? I have blocked some destination IP adresses (IPs of other vlans and public ips) and some ports on my lan interface by firewall rules. In addition I'm using snort.

    If i setup squid transparent proxy. Can clients bypass my firewall rules using the proxy? Are the firewall rules evaluated before the traffic reaches the squid?
