Thankyou for your quick response!
I was trying to work out the URL from balabit.com

I did eventually manage to reverse enginear the sources 
deb http://www.balabit.com/downloads/files/zorp/zorp-os/ zorp-os-3.1/3.1security zorp-os common-gpl etc

which seems to be downloading now, but i will update with the correct URL you have just provided.

I have since noticed that the correct url is on the sourceforge site which i hadn't spotted before.

My reason for needing Zorp OS is is purely one of frustration with my failure to apply the TPROXY patchs under debian or gentoo myself to get a fully transparent squid cache. I have built no less than 16 kernels this week and probably about 40 iptables, still I was getting --to-port not being accepted! Hopefully zorp os will allow me to use the wonderful TPROXY patch successfully!

Hopefully I will have an fully transparent proxy by the end of the day! And maybe then I can convince the company I work for to give you a donation or buy your commercial version so they can use it too! We use squid heavily but so far we bypass certain things that need client IP for authentication, hopefully with tproxy we can cache the images in those apps too.

Thanks for your help
