I would add a dst-nat firewall rule to redirect all tcp port 80 traffic to port 3128. Then enable your webproxy on port 3128 on your MT. Then I would make use of SQUID as your parent proxy.

There are other ways of doing it too, but I find redirecting only port 80 traffic to work the best.

I also think SQUID is a much better proxy. In the later versions of MT, some features like max-file-size has been removed. In 2.9.6 you had the function to choose the maximum file size to be cached.
