[Shorewall-users] port forward from local net to local machine

This mean that on the proxy side all connection will look like they were
coming from the firewall?
I think the software is using a user/password  identification model so it's
probably not important.

Actually I have not tested this part.
I'm just testing if the port redirection is working doing a telnet to port
I'm supposed to get html headers and actually the telnet doesn't even

Any idea?

Is it a requirement that the identity of the client be maintained between
the client and the proxy (that is, do you want to know WHO is requesting
this content that you are going to be censoring)?
