Squid Proxy Server Change Outgoing IP Address

I have Squid caching proxy server deployed on Rackspace based server in UK. This server has four IP address. I would like to change outgoing IP addresses from default 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.4. How do I change proxy server outgoing IP address under Linux or Unix operating systems?


You need to configure the option tcp_outgoing_address in squid.conf file. This option allows you to map requests to different outgoing IP addresses. The IP address can be based on the username or source address of the user making the request. The syntax is:

tcp_outgoing_address YOUR-IP-ADDRESS-HERE

Configuration

Edit the squid.conf file:
# vi /etc/squid/squid.conf
Find or add the following configuration directive:

tcp_outgoing_address 1.2.3.4

Save and close the file. Reload the squid proxy server / config file changes by typing the following command:
# squid -k reconfigure
OR

I installed squid transparent proxy server in one system(eth0=192.168.1.203 ,eth1=192.168.3.5) I deployed one application in one system (proxy Client, eth0=192.168.3.60) .We have router with IP 192.168.1.1

Now i can access this application from lan (proxy server area 192.168.3.0/24) .But i am unable to access this application from 192.168.1.0/24 and External network.

    Guys, i need my web cache to show client or system’s exact IP public address instead of showing its own IP.

    Thanks in advance.
