Google Mini and A Proxy Server

I website is hosted remotely and the google mini sits on our internal
network.  I do not want to give the mini an external IP address adn
make it public to the world.  I would like to put a proxy server in
place in order to handle the requests that come through to the mini.
The problem is, I do not know where to start with setting up a proxy
server.  Can some one please give me directions on how ot set up a
proxy server in our Windows based network?

We do have a DMZ in place and a some servers that are published.

You have a DMZ so you have a firewall.  Why don't you just create a pinhole rule to allow traffic into the google mini device?

Your firewall (please indicate what you have for a firewall) should be able to forward traffic requests on an outside address to your Mini.  To do this setup the Mini in the DMZ with an IP for the DMZ (static not dynamic), then configure NAT or port forwarding on your firewall to forward requests to the Mini.  The steps needed to forward the traffic depend on the firewall.

We have a PIIX 515E. I believe we have NAT set up already.

do you have an unused public IP, if so translate it on the pix to the IP of the mini that way it will be reachable from the outside, if you do not have a public IP to spare you can use PAT (port address translation) to forward spacific ports to the mini

Is there a way route traffic to the Mini without putting it on the DMZ?  Our published servers have dual NICs and are plugged into our DMZ and our LAN.  Can it be done through one of those?

It would be pest to put it on the DMZ then your internal hosts and the outside world would be able to reach it

Also all your published servers should only be in the DMZ dual hoaming them like that can open security holes...

OK. We have extra external IP's so I am going to give that a try.
