Don't you mean using the server?
You need to use masquerading at the server
Take a look at
http://www.howtoforge.com/internet-c...ading-on-linux
If this is not the case, please point out exactly what you want to accomplish.

Kind regards

Hi itaima,

Please clarify what you want to do as it's not clear in your description.

What will be the function of your "Linux server"?

See the link repo has given. You need to setup Linux box with masquerading on. You can use iptables for nating the outgoing connections.
