NIC-A is connected to the modem using UTP Cable and assigened an IP address, NIC-B is connected to a switch and assigned an IP address I want to share my internet connection with other systems in the network using squid as the proxy. I would like to configure squid to share my internet connection. Can some one help me.

it sounds like what you actually need is a firewall/router/dhcp server.

one that assigns IP address to your client machines and routes all internet bount traffic through it's nic that's connected to the internet.

what software are you using on ur proxy? which linux distro. It's no problem to have a firewall/router/proxy all in one. something like smoothwall or ipcop can do this or you can set it all up youself...
