install proxy

                 I want to install proxy, I have followed the passages of how-to that I must install the IP-MASQ,
                  already this installed but it does not say to me but nothing and works to me, I install squid and it does
                  not load the security option to me.

I'm currently doing the same thing in a private network that I have at home. What I did was:
1.- Setup a router
so the computers can communicate to each other even if they are offline.

2.- Setup the IP Masq
so all the computers can communicate to the Internet. this included recompiling the kernel and a small shell script to load the ip masq every time i reboot.

3.- Setup Squid
in one of the machines that has a private IP address.

4.- Configure the other computers
in the browsers, ftp clients, or all the other things that I want to use the proxy with.

What all these does (I think) is: from the computer that you are browsing goes to the proxy and asks for a page, the proxy then if it does not have it goes to the ip masq host to be able to get out to the internet, after that the proxy server serves the page to the first box (the one you are browsing with.)

visit the howto's to know how to recompile a kernel, do ip masq, setup squid, and a router.

I hope these information can help you.
