Postby zAm » Tue Dec 06, 2005 10:08 am

Hello,
Guys ... can somebody tell me that can i use transparent proxy with port 443 (for https requests) if there is anyway out so tell me how ? i also tried this
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p TCP --dport 443 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080
but it doesn't works at all ..... but when i use manual proxy in IE so the https websites works fine , i want to make it transparent like i did with http requests at 80 port. urgently need your consultancy. Thanks

Dear zAm,
Salam,

HTTPS (normally TCP port 443) cannot be proxied transparently (stop and think about it for a minute; if HTTPS could be transparently proxied, then how secure would it be?).

FYI, http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-1.html#ss1.12

Best Regards.
