Internet Sharing at Gateway Level

Hi Expert,

I have Windows Server 2008 which is connected to a Lan. Now I want to share the internet on Server 2008 with other PCs on the network.

I am aware of many Web Proxy servers like CCproxy, AnalogX to share the internet but I want something which shares internet at Gateway Level.

For Eg. Windows 2008 Server should ACT as a DHCP server and should be the gateway for alll the PCs on the lan.

I think Remote Access and Routing function in 2008 server can do this but it doesn't have Bandwidth Shaping function.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How does the server connect to the internet?
Hopefully, it is not directly connected with a public IP address (not a good idea).

Unless you're running ISA (or Forefront Threat Mgmt) on the server I STRONGLY recommend rethinking your network design, and add a proper router/firewall in front of your server.

If you are running ISA, your have built-in web proxy capabilities.
