1) Before you start playing around with squid and firewall you
    have to make sure your FreeBSD box works as a gateway.
2) When this is done look into google for setup of squid as a
    transparent proxy (these are two or three entries in a config
3) enable firewall in /etc/rc.conf with lines like
4) edit your /etc/firewall.conf with something like

    ipfw add 500 fwd tcp from any to any 80 recv rl0
    ipfw add 60000 allow all from any to any

    where rl0 is the device name of your NIC.
5) reboot
