I have around 15 PCs (some Windows 7 and rest Macs) connected in a wireless lan.

I have setup one of the Win 7 PC as Proxy Server.

How do I ensure that all machines in the network connect through this proxy server for getting internet access?

Can you explain why you would want all computers to connect through one server? That will probably be very slow due to limited wireless bandwidth. – Spikolynn Apr 9 '13 at 16:06

Most browsers have a proxy setting available. Set your browsers to use the proxy.

What about other apps that don't allow you to specify a proxy and don't use IE's setting either? – Karan Apr 9 '13 at 14:22

Make the machine a gateway and set other machines to use its IP address as gateway (in network settings)

right click on the internet connection in network connections and select share this connection. Atleast that was how I did it in windows xp – Spikolynn Apr 9 '13 at 10:59
