[Snort-users] Snort on proxy (outbound alerts)

I cannot run a transparent proxy.

You got it, I want to be alerted about my LAN.
Already thought about BPF filters, but what you are forgetting, is that
some rules are made to match on some DESTINATIONS. In my case, the
destination for my clients' HTTP traffic will always be my proxy.
Something interesting, would be if snort could look at the CONNECT method
in my HTTP requests (for example).
