Sonicwall Pro 4100 as a temporary band-aid Proxy

We currently have a proxy in place and we will be rolling out a script to take the proxy setting out of the browsers.  My concern is that is doesn't work for everyone and we get calls because people can't access the internet.

The proxy will be pulled and the IP of the proxy will be assigned to the X2 port on the Sonicwall.

Is there a way that I can configure the sonicwall to act as the proxy in case the script doesn't delete the proxy settings in the browser?

Current Setup

WAN-(x1)Sonicwall(x0)-192.168.x.2(Proxy Box)10.x.x.11<-->10.x.x.x Network

Future Setup

WAN--(x1)Sonicwall(x2)-10.x.x.11<-->10.x.x.x Network

No, there's no proxy-server function for the Sonicwall.  

Any w/s which doesn't lose it's "proxy" IP address in accordance with the script will fail to work, sadly, so you must make sure the script works or tell users how to manually check their proxy settings.
