When I was playing with Squid and transparent proxying, web downtime due
to squid server problems was not an acceptable I played
around with gated, and through some gated games, got the squid server
setup such that when it was up, there was a default route in OSPF pointing
to the squid server. The metric on that route was high enough that
I had some systems using it, some ignoring it. Thus if the squid server
was down, customers would get to the web non-proxied. I had to give up
testing as the hardware I had available was inadequate.
