Set-up & Configure Proxy Server

Posted on 2014-08-30
Last Modified: 2015-06-13
I just bought an older Windows Mobile Device that doesn't allow wi-fi connections.  I want to make my laptop a proxy server and have the windows mobile device connect to the proxy server (to use the same Internet Connection).    

My laptop is using Windows 8 64 bit.  If someone could guide me in detail, that would be great.  Also, answer any questions I have.  Also, I wanted to ask what is the server name that I use as the proxy server- how do I determine what that is from my laptop.

    What model/make/type? Sounds like a real oldie from the time you needed ActiveSync installed on your computer. Support pretty much ended with XP, with Vista doing a little bit, and Windows 7 even less. Windows 8 will be just hopeless, let alone the 64 bits part

    Make a screenshot of your device manager before AND after you connect the device via usb.
