proxy with outlook

can someone gimme a good and easy proxy for internet connection sharing ......... dat includes outlook express ....... i've tried a few like analog proxy ....... i want something easy to configure....certainly not winproxy....cause if there's a problem then someone with relatively no knowledge  can atleast check and tell if the settings are fine

i wanna use this proxy on a network in which the server connects to the internet by a cable (cablenet)  ....... the main ....or i could say only usage of this proxy is gonna be browsing the internet and outlook express !!!! i've  searched the internet but didn't really come up with anything useful .......

i found analog proxy useful but wen configuring it with outlook .... i'm able to send mails but for some reason can't receive ...... my outgoin is smtp port = 25  ...and incoming is pop3 port = 110 ....dat's how i've configured it ....... if someone could help me use analog proxy ....... i'd be really happy

thanx

Why not use internet connection sharing instead?  Using a proxy is much harder to set up.  What versions of windows, etc are the machines?

You could setup an IPCOP box.  Its Free.  It is a firewall/Proxy Box. You can install it on a old computer (some people say it runs fine on a 486, I use it on a PII 366 Mhz and it runs fine.  Real Easy to install and configure.  It uses Squid as its proxy server.  I have no trouble with my outlook clients and it does a great job caching my webpages.  It has graphs showing you how many cach hits/misses you are getting, what websites computers have been on etc..

Most Routers dont have Proxy Built-in.  Proxy allows you to cache websites for faster access.

I belive ICS just allows you to share your internet connection it does not act like a proxy and cache webpages

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/ipcop/ipcop-1.4.0.iso

That is the link to download the IPCOP ISO.  Just click the Location Closest to you and it will download.

Once you download it.  Burn the ISO to a disk.  Insert it in a computer you wish to install it to and tell it to boot from cd.  The IPCOP will install,  Its a pretty straight foward process.  I had no trouble my first time.
