Ping does not work through the Proxy Server, since Ping uses the ICMP protocol to communicate, and the Proxy Server only supports TCP and UDP packets. Ping will only resolve the DNS name. For example:

D:\>ping www.microsoft.com
Pinging www.microsoft.com [207.68.137.36] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 157.58.96.1: Destination net unreachable.
Reply from 157.58.96.1: Destination net unreachable.

No. You can access the net, since the TCP and UDP package can be forward through Proxy server. Ping uses ICMP, which cannot be forward through Proxy, so, you cannot does Ping with the net outside your LAN.

Please see the whitepaper of Proxy server of Microsoft.

Proxy is connected with internet by getting IP address from DHCP server.
I can access internet from Lan where this proxy is installed but not from
different subnet of my network.My problem is still persist.One of my friend
also told me not to get good result if connecting proxy on internet on dialup.
thanks to you anyway.

If you have more than subnets, there is a few problem you should be noticed:

1. The defult routing to Internet is point to router LAN address.
2. The route to other subnets should add manually by specifying speratly

   route add -p NetAddr mask NetMask Local Address route host cost.
