Works very well. Use the additional freatures of MT for bandwidth control also... Then get rid of the "C" box! :)

I'm still confused..
do I have to put a default gateway on the mikrotik pointing to CISCO router or just enable web proxy and add firewall rule to redirect to port 8080??

I want to do this:

-build mikrotik box with two interfaces bridged together
-add IP to the bridge (just to manage the Mikrotik-
-enable web-proxy with transparent mode
-add firewall rule to redirect traffic to port 80

do I miss any thing else??

my goal is to sell caching machines to ISPs so I want the box to work on any network without any configurations. I mean if one ISP sell his box to another one the other one could use the box without any modification - like IP addresses or default gateways .... I want it to be like a switch just plug and play.

Yes this is interesting. Would appreciate to know if some one tried the transparent web cache feature.

Yes, just that easy. Use a "real" HD for the cache, not flash...
