I am a NOOB so please be patient with me :-)

I have noticed that quite a few people use proxy servers to let people on their LAN's connect to the internet and control who connects and who doesn't.

I am running W2K3 server and wondered how can i setup a proxy server and also what settings must i put in my win xp clients so they connect through the proxy.

A basic step by step would be nice :-)

my win 2003 server controls DHCP and DNS, currently we connect to the internet via DHCP and anybody can get an internet connection, which i would like to change and give access to individual users in my AD.

Thank you.

    do you have a domain setup?  nobody should be allowed to log onto any computer unless they have a domain account.  The easiest thing for you to do would be to set up a domain and force users to authenticate before they even log into a computer.  Setting up a domain will also give you MUCH more control of your users.
