MAC address filtering will only work on the same LAN segment. The mac address for your IP will be the gateway of the squid server if you are connecting remotely.

Hello everyone, I have a question (and it may be a stupid one), but here goes. 
I use squid on my server for privacy reasons when I surf the web. I currently 
use IP addresses as my access restriction; only my home IP has access to my 
squid server. I was thinking of transitioning to MAC addresses for ACL 
purposes, so that I can use my proxy when I'm on the bus or at work. Are MAC 
addresses any less secure as an ACL restriction than IP addresses?

Thank you for your time!
