    Transparent Proxy with HTTPS

    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

    I have this problem too.
    This is my iptables' rules:

    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s ! <squid-server> -d -p tcp --dport 80 -i br0 -j DNAT --to-destination <squid-server>:<port>
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -s ! <squid-server> -d -p tcp --dport 443 -i br0 -j DNAT --to-destination <squid-server>:<port>

    With this rule all http requests served but https requests failed. And when directly connected to squid it was OK and can serve https requests.

    And Firefox returned "ssl_error_rx_record_too_long" error.

    If I cannot use squid, please help me to find another product.
