What do you intend to do in the first place? Proxy numbers? do you mean proxy port numbers or hiding your internal LAN ip?

If you want to hide your internal LAN ip, deploy a firewall and do the NAT (Network Address Translation) there and it will hide your internal ip for you.

Are you looking for anonymous surfing?

If you want to use an IP address proxy (the kind you find in a proxy list) then you'll need to edit internet explorer's proxy settings.

First find the proxy that you want to use.  It should be in the form ip:port.  For example is the ip and 8888 is the port.

To use the proxy with internet explorer follow these steps:

Open IE and click the tools menu.  Then click internet options.  Go to the connections tab and click LAN settings.

Now check the box that says use a proxy server for your LAN.  Enter the ip and port of the proxy you wanted to use.  Click ok and your proxy should be working now.

Please note that a high percentage of proxies don't work so you might have trouble finding a working one. is usually a good one to find them.  Good luck
