Setting Router/Broadband Modem 4 Proxy
Ive searched high and low on this topic but to no avail.
I want to surf the net anonymously, I know what your thinking, just add a proxy into IE and your good to go, well I have several machines hooked to a firewall, which goes through a DSL Modem. I want each machine behind the modem to use a proxy for all internet communications, such as surfing, email, and the rare chance i might do some port scanning. Ive messed with the modem but it contains no settings for proxy servers, neither does the firewall. Im at a loss here. Can anyone shed some light on my situation?

What about this guys, the Firewall has rules you can create. What if I made a rule telling it to send all communication outgoing to the proxy server? Would this work or cause me problems?

Mmmm, I can't speak for all firewalls, but I can't recall any firewalls that allows rules to be created in that context, at least any that I've messed with.

As far as surfing the net anonymously, check out this thread:
EDIT: One other comment. If you can't find an answer to your questions on Google, either you need to refine your searches ( not being judgmental ), or you are trying to do something that can't be done, hasn't been done, or nobody else has thought of. I would go with the first choice though. A search on AO of anonymous proxies....?

What modem are you using? I have a basic setup and it works really well:
Internet-->DSL modem-->Freebsd firewallbox-->home network
It's the fbsd firewall that makes the the connection (I have to use a PPTP dialup).
This makes it possible to use the freebsd box as a firewall and a proxy (transparently if needed).
If I read your post correctly you have a modem with a builtin firewall. It's also the modem that makes the actual connection. This would mean you would have to install a proxy on your modem and I don't think that's possible.
On the other hand, if you just want to surf anonymously you may want to read What Socks to wear?
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
