Re: [PLUG] Router Suggestion + Home proxy server setup

I am trying to setup squid proxy at home. I have 4 machines 1 linux box 3 windows connected to a D-Link router (Wired and Wireless) which connects to a DSL Modem. Currently all the machines share Internet directly from the router.
With the current hardware can I configure the following scenario.

Network of 4 machines connected to each other but not all to the internet.
Only 1 of the 4 machine is connected to the internet
The 3 other machines use the 4th machine as a proxy server.

All machine have 1 network card each.

Is it possible with any router to just block internet access to few machines or only allow from one machine?



  Since the mail said Home, I am assuming you are trying to protect your kid. If that is the case, there is
a Firefox extension "". As long as your child does not know how to disable an extension through file deletion or file modification, you do not need squid proxy etc
