It should be like that

Intercept and/or redirect the traffic to the chosen port. Having the proxy on the same machine as the interceptor is preferable. The code example uses iptables as the redirection mechanism, and port 8080 as the proxy's http_port.
To a different machine

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $INTERFACE -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to
To the same machine

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $INTERFACE -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080
Squid configuration

In the squid.conf file, configure these options:

* httpd_accel_host virtual
* httpd_accel_port 80
(or whatever port you want to proxy)
* httpd_accel_with_proxy on
* httpd_accel_uses_host_header on
