Trying to Use Vyatta as Transparent Proxy


I am trying to set up a web filter on a network without modifying the addressing structure of my network. I would like to block workstations from accessing websites restricted by a Vyatta webproxy service. However, I do not want to manually configure the workstations.

vyatta@R1# commit

Would bridge eth0 & eth1 and give it an IP
