I have a client who is situated too far way from the
closest ADSL DSLAM. There isn't any 3G or 4G coverage
either. His ADSL bandwidth is: 1.1Mbps/0.6Mbps.
I suggested we take the satellite route and they are now
using NordNet/TooWay (Orange) 12Mbps/4Mbps.
Unfortunately the latency and frequent link disruptions
are not making this option very attractive to their clients.
I am contemplating adding Squid to a small Debian box which
is already collecting log data (MySQL).
Because of the limited number of connectors on the Mikrotik
RB450, I have had to connect this linux box as shown below
Though on different subnets the linux box and Zyxel can see
I have set the linux box's default gateway as the RB450
From what I understand, I must enable the Web proxy on the
RB450 and specify the linux box as 'parent' proxy.
I also read somewhere that I could use the NAT masquerade
rule on the RB450 to redirect http traffic to the squid.
I guess I'll have to setup a mangle rule to redirect the returning
http squid traffic in order to have it sent via the SAT link.
Any ideas, suggestions caveats ?
