I have 5 static ip addresses assigned to me from comcast.  I would like to be able to connect to the internet using all 5 of the ip addresses, from the same computer. I would like to use my ip's as proxys, so I would have the ip address and port number.   Is there a way to set up my comcast static ip's to act as proxys? I use Windows XP home and pro.

I am using an SMC Networks SMC8014 router, assigned to me from comcast business class.  I have 5 ip's and I want to be able to use all 5 of them at the same time from a single computer.  I would like for them to work like proxys, where I would use the ip address and a port number.

to accomplish this you'd need your Router to proxy the connections for your. But you router is not capable of doing this. It could only allow you to use reverse NAT.

In thet say that you have 5 different instances of your web servers on yo1r computer. You can run them assigned to:

8080
8081
8082
8083
8084

of your IP of say 10.10.0.2.

In thah case you can define NAT rules to to assign each of these to different IP's 80 port so that

x.y.z.IP1:80 will map to 10.10.0.2:8080
x.y.z.IP2:80 will map to 10.10.0.2:8081
x.y.z.IP3:80 will map to 10.10.0.2:8082
x.y.z.IP4:80 will map to 10.10.0.2:8083
x.y.z.IP5:80 will map to 10.10.0.2:8084

But instead of this you can use only one IP address mapping and you can use VirtualHost based on incoming web request and you can serve different pages if it comes with:

www.example.com 
www.otherexample.com.

Then the extra IP's will only be needed if you need to assign SSL to each virtualhost.

Are you just experimenting or is there really something that you want to implement with this method?

Another solution would be to use this single server as a Reverse Proxy and serve them form different intranet hosts. But it would require you to route all five addresses to your single server and the server have some secondary IP's assigned to it and serve requests over the reverse proxy that you will set-up.

I am very novice on this subject, so I apologize if I am not fully understanding your answer.

I may not have been fully clear on what I would like to accomplish.  I am not operating a server or hosting any websites.  

I want to be able to use all 5 of my ip's from 1 computer, so to the site I am connecting to it would look like I am 5 different computers.  My idea was to somehow turn my ip's into proxys.

If my router isn't capable of something like this, I can buy other equipment if I can find out what I need.

But I don't think there's a proxy to do that.. Because it is not load balancing. I don't thinkl you can assign yourself different IPs based on your client ports..

I've given my professional opinion and told him that there is no s1uch proxy as the user expects it to be. Sometimes experts should say that something is not possible. I believe my comments are appropriate and qualified  to be considered as an answer
