proxy setup


Hello
I use online resources often and most of the web sites I subscribe to are ip validated... So, now I have to travel and I was wanting to set up a box to connect into via the web.
Code:
{Me Dialup to AOHell}          \\
                                \\
                                 \\
                          {Internet}-------------{Online websites IP Validated}
                                ///
                               ///
{Linux box Dual Cable Modems}
I know this has to be possible but I have had a hard time finding info as to how... I am very new to linux and am running redhat8.
Any information or fingers pointing to info would be greatly appreciated

Could you explain a little more clearly exactly what you want to accomplish? I am not sure I am following you correctly..

Yes, not a problem. I have a small network at home that uses a linux box to share an internet connection. I use medical resources on the web that validate via IP instead of user name and password. Since I will be away from home often now, I will have to use a dialup connection to get on the internet, thus giving me a dynamic IP that wont validate me to get into my resources web sites. So, I want to configure my box at home to work as a proxy for me. I will dial up to the internet via whatever isp I decide to use, then use the box at home as a proxy to change my ip to its ip, that way I can get into the sites.
Hope this is better lol

Much better. You can configure squid to proxy for users on the Internet (this is dangerous) but you would have to set up authentication. It is normally accomplished by ip address as well but I believe it can be done using user names and passwords. I would check out http://squid-cache.org and look up the different methods of authentication. You will also have to edit your squid.conf to use both interfaces (internal and external). Doesn't sound too tough to set up though.

Thank you for the reply One last thing, what would you call this kind of setup... I hear alot of different names for proxy setups,like reverse proxy, forwarding proxy, etc., but not one for this lol. I am reading the squid manual now so I will post better questions later if I still need to. Ty again

Anytime. I would call it a Global Proxy, as it can be used from anywhere on Earth, and it sounds catchy.. :-)

Nice reply lol. Thank you for all the help. I studied squid and got it running with username/password authentication. Wasnt as hard as I was making it out to be hehehe. I stipped the extra network card that I didnt need, and allowed http traffic from all domains. Thats all it took lol... Now I set my computer to my proxy port and all is well. THanks again
