[DeleGate-En] Re: Transparent Proxy & delegate

Thanks for your answer, but I fear that it's not what I'm looking for.

I'd need to send to the SOCKS server all the SOCKSable traffic passing 
through the  gateway running delegate, but not directed to this host.

Consider this scenario:

Host A ---
           |        Gateway
Host B -------->   running ---->Internet <------- SOCKS server
           |       delegate         ^
Host C ---                         |

Host A,B,C belong to a private network and are connected to the Internet 
via a gateway (that nats the private network addresses).

When host A wants to go somewhere, for example to, the 
gateway intercepts the packets coming from host A and redirects the 
request to the socks server. All this stuff without having to do any 
SOCKS setting on host A.

The configuration that you suggested,please correct me if I'm wrong, is 
redirecting to the external SOCKS server all the packets arriving to 
port 1080 of the gateway.

Any other suggestion?
