Configure IPTABLES to route all port 443 and 21 traffic through Squid

I have a Linux firewall/router.  IPTABLES is configured so all port 80 traffic routes through squid using the following rule:

$IPT -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $INTDEV -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080

However, when I use similar rules to route port 443 and port 21 traffic to squid it does not work.

What squid config would I need to make this work?

Simply because https(443) and ftp(21) traffic can't be proxied in transparent mode by squid, refer

Excellent information.  I didn't even realize I was doing a transparent proxy.  I thought I was just doing a nice little trick with IPTABLES.  

Thanks.
