What that server is used for?
There are two ways you can share internet.
Using proxy server or gateway or using router.
Both have their advantages and disadvantages it depends on your requirements.
If you want to share internet connection for web only you can use any proxy server available, winproxy, wingate or lansuite.
Do you want to have internal email server also? if yes you need to use mail server also if no how others will use email?

If you have ADSL connection I would request to go for router based connection so you will get one RJ45 port from ADSL router which you can put on switch and configure your gateway and internet will be available. don't forget about virus and firewall

mail me on
