How to setup Proxy server for subnetting

By walshgraham ·
Our network is running out of IP addresses fast can I use proxy server to set up a
subnet? We need to subnet some labs that use lots of IP addresses and someone sugested using Proxy server as a relatively cheap
solution. Has anybody tried this before? The Proxy server will only be used for subnetting a group of 50-75 computers and won't be used for firewall purposes. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

How to setup Proxy server for subnetting

Your idea has merit. MS proxy server could be used to segment your address space. You do not have to turn on the packet filters in the proxy server.

However, I would take a simpler approach...
enable IP forwarding (routing) on a multihomedsystem i.e. one with 2 or more NICs. Go to Control panel / network / protocol tab / select TCP protocol / properties button / routing tab


For security purposes this multihomed computer must NOT be directly connected to the internet if you enable IP forwarding.

Good luck,
Jerry
