I have a Ubuntu Machine connecting through a proxy server to the internet. I'd like to turn this machine into a Wireless Access Point.

I should look like this:

(Client) --wireless--> (Access Point) --wired--> (Proxy)

The Access Point should form a new subnet for the clients. Ideally the clients should not be able to see each other, but that's just a bonus.

The part Client to Access Point I can handle, but the rest is very confusing to me.

I found several programs for attaching a proxy to a network interface:

  • tun2socks
  • redsocks
  • dante

None of them worked for me, so I'm hoping anyone of you has some experience with that kind of setup.

Can you maybe describe why these things didn't work for you? They won't work in your situation, you're new to them and don't know how to configure them correctly, etc.. –  ekaj Jun 10 '13 at 3:52
