Win 2000 Pro Proxy?
Im running win2k pro on my home system, and was wandering what a good PROXY i can set up on it to hide my ip and other info!(i know its impossible to hide but just want to make it a tiny bit harder to get) Or is it even worthwhile to set up a proxy and just get a decent firewall instead...

Try using this program..It's called MultiProxy!
I think its available for Windows 2000.
It offers ALOT of great features!
I Hope this has Helped You

You really don't need a proxy. Instead, just stick with a good firewall. The proxy really won't do that much for you (won't really stop anyone who was determined to do something to you), but the firewall can be invaluable.

i just use ICS in win2k... A.) no need to be running extra proxy software and b.) Small security include... I also run a firewall on top of it to protect me further.. Very stable and very secure. so you might want to think about that route

I ran firewalls and proxys in the past...Its much easier just to get a hardware firewall (Linx. Firewall)

You want to hide your IP with a proxy on your computer? Not possible. When you go through a proxy, SOME proxies will make it so that the other computer sees the proxy's address, not your own.
But if you and the proxy are the same thing... what's the difference?

A hardware firewall is the best solution, but you can use a software solution.
