1.WHENEVER IAM GIVING HTTP REQUEST ,ON PORT 80 OF SERVER . SERVER SENDING ITS APACHE DEFAULT PAGE, WHEN WE HAVE CHANGED THE SQUID DEFAULT PORT ADDRESS TO 80 .WHEN THE DEFAULT PORT 3128 IS IN USE , AS A DEFAULT SETTING , THE HTTP REQUEST FROM THE CLIENT BROWSER R FARWARDING TO THE INTERNET . BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT IT IS NOT ALLOWING IRC CHATTING EVEN IN THE BROWSER OR SOME CHATTING APPLICATIONS, LIKE "MIRC", "YAHOO CHAT " ETC.

NOT GETTING IRC CHATTING ON LINUX 6.0

This sounds like a problem in your ipchains configuration.

The problem appears to be that your clients are requesting these things (http requests and irc sessions) to your gateway on the 'normal' ports. However, you've reconfigured them (as services) on your linux system.

Essentially, though, you really want them to pass through without really 'hitting' the server (since it's your NAT/gateway box).

You need to write your ipchains rules like so:
ipchains -A forward -s 192.168.142.0/24-d 0.0.0.0/0 -j MASQ

Substitute the ip address 192.168.142.0/24 with whatever you're using on the 'inside'. 0.0.0.0 says 'anywhere else'. The -A means all, the -j says "use Masquerading."

In this way, your server will function as it's supposed to for services off your net.

If you're trying to get to services on your server, your clients need to be configured to request on those ports. Not many windows programs I'm aware of can are configurable in this (although MIRC client may be so; also, you can modify http requests by appending ort to an http request in most browsers, i.e., http://www.myserver.com:9999 if you're running an httpd on port 9999 of the server answering up to www.myserver.com).

Good luck.

That was a very thoughtful and thorough first answer. Why don't you go ahead and accept that answer and close the question.
