Now, I am not sure one thing. ipnat.conf is an ipfilter conf file. I use
pf. I was wondering - maybe I should use squid setup defining an acl that
would banned connection to port 3128 in squid? I am not sure yet how to do
it (all of this is totally new to me) but I guess it is probably quite
simple. Then I should probably set squid in the transparent mode which
would enable me to point browsers to auto-discover proxy settings? Again, I
am not sure my thinking is correct.
