  • Configuring Proxy on Home router

    Hi,

    I would like to use a paid Proxy service.
    The thing is that all the Proxy configuration is done from the web browsers side.

    I would like to cinfigure it on the router, so each computer connected to the router would go out from that Proxy.

    I use 3Com OfficeConnect home router.

    All computers in LAN are windows XP or Windows 2008.
    No Domain, all computers are stand alone.

    Your help is appritiated.

    Thanks

    Does your 3Com OfficeConnect home router have a model number?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      simply block all outbound traffic to port 80 and 443 on your router.
      make sure that everyone in your home is clear they have to configure IE and firefox to use the proxy.

      my question though, is why you might want to be doing this?

        Fairly pointless exercise as the Router is presumably his gateway of last resort. The proxy would need to be on his network or upstream.

          Hence my question re model number. I have seen routers that allow you to insert a proxy for it to use then the whole home network uses that proxy.
