Thin clients are just displaying a remote session that is actually occurring on the server. As such, any traffic generated by these programs is being generated from the server, not the thin client. The only exceptions to this would be anything running as a local app, and the LTSP session traffic that goes between the server and the thin clients.  That traffic comes from programs running on the thin client, so that traffic actually is coming from the thin client.

Thanks for you answer.

I know, and that is exactly my problem.
I was able to set up transparent proxy with Squid for traffic on the lan, but the thinclients don't generate traffic on the lan,
but on the server itself.
And I can't find anywhere how to direct that traffic to Squid as well :-)
