I have 2 machines connected to a network that provides internet access.

I would like one of the machines, which is running Ubuntu 10.04, to act as an internet proxy for the other machine, which is running Windows.

How would I set this up? Is there a good Ubuntu proxy I can install?

Can I set up my Ubuntu machine as a proxy?


How would I set this up?

Set what up? What sort of proxy? An "internet" proxy you say... so internet via SOCKS proxy or internet via HTTP proxy?

Is there a good Ubuntu proxy I can install?

Squid. There is a guide for configuring this here.

Preferably a SOCKS proxy. – Nathan Osman May 22 '10 at 2:05
Take a look at Antinat then. – May 22 '10 at 2:10
