    Question Good Proxy Software

    Hi all

    I am looking for a decent piece of proxy software which will allow me to share my DUN connection between all my computers.

    The network is already in place but I would like a free bit of proxy software which will automagically dial the dial up and connect when proxy requests are recieved from the other machines.

    Any suggestions ?

    Note: Security is not really a problem as each machine has NAV and Firewall installed.

    Mark,
    I would suggest Analogx's proxy software. It is a free download from:
    http://www.analogx.com/contents/down...work/proxy.htm
    It comes with a help file describing how to configure it and your clients. It also talks about how to make it work with dial-up networking.
    I have not personally used this Analogx program, but I have always been pleased with his other software. Give it a try, and check out the rest of his site. Good luck!

    I used to use Proxy+ which is a pretty reliable program. Since I cant remember what all it does from memory, I'll just quote the snippet from download.com

    Proxy+ is a firewall, proxy, and mail server designed to provide a complete solution of shared access to the Internet from a LAN. Proxy+ features advanced sorting of incoming messages and advanced caching of Web pages. Version 2.20 added an uninstall feature, a full SMTP mail server, proxy cascading by ICP protocol, new documentation, and Socks server support for ICQ. Version 2.50 added enhanced downloading and sorting of mail from POP3 mailboxes, the ability to authenticate a user in a Web browser, and prevention from abusing security bugs in MS Outlook and Outlook Express. This update features minor enhancements and bug fixes.

    Actually if I remember correctly, Proxy+ can be set to dial up to the internet on demand, and will disconnect after a set period of inactivity. Another program i used was Avirt Gateway, which could also connect to a dialup connection automatically I believe, but it wasnt freeware like Proxy+, so I never really spent much time with it.
