We'll be glad to help you; so start by telling us what you've done/tried/researched on your own first. You've been here for FIVE YEARS now....you should be well aware of the "Question Guidelines" about doing your own research and showing effort.

Also, your question is not very clear. You say "firewall", then say you want access through a proxy server, along with bandwidth allocation/limiting. Firewalls are for blocking/limiting access. The things you're asking can be done through squid alone. Also, you don't say anything about your environment, any existing proxy/firewall systems, etc. The Fedora documentation has information on setting up a firewall:
https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US...mands-firewall

....if you checked. And "bandwidth allocation" can be done either through squid (check documentation) or via the tc command for traffic shaping. Again, you don't say whether you mean allocation for ALL network traffic, or just web.

Hi,

Since I am working in windows platform am not much exposure to LINUX. So I wanted to build firewall which can act as proxy server. It must be block internet access and have provision to allow particular PC access internet

Regards

Ok...so as said, install and configure Squid. AGAIN...a firewall is NOT for proxying web traffic, nor throttling such connections. That's what Squid is for. A firewall BLOCKS/ALLOWS access to specific network ports for security, as well as NAT'ing. The concepts are identical on Windows and Linux.

There is AMPLE documentation on how to configure Squid...you still haven't answered any of the questions asked previously, nor given us ANY details about your version/distro of Linux or environment. We can't guess. Unless you answer questions and show effort of your own (again, read the "Question Guidelines"), there isn't much point in posting.
