Yes you can do this. The best way is to have 2 NICs. Even better, cheaper, easier to use is WinRoute Pro.

There are several ways to do this. You CAN do this with one NIC that is multi-homed (has two IP addresses), but this is not the best way. You can also put two NICs in your Proxy Server - this is better. One NIC has a private IP address with the same subnet mask and default gateway as your user's workstations and other servers, and the other NIC has the public IP and uses a subnet mask and default gateway that route traffic to an ISP or other location you are communicating with using your public IP network. Hope this helps!

To use all of Proxy's features you have to have an external IP. GO WITH SYNERGY's answer, that is how it is done.

Synergy is right. I have done this with DSL at home with Sybergens Sygate Software. Sygate is a good proxy. Winroute Pro is too, but Sygate is easier to use. I set up two nics. One for the internal LAN and one for the internet. The IP assigning for the internet is of course from your ISP or AT&T/MCI. Get a hub and connect the internal nic to the hub with a uplink/crossover cable. Then plug workstations into the hub or daisy chain your hubs if you have small hubs. It's pretty easy and you don't have to set up proxy settings in your browser.
Also make sure to get a firewall or put your proxy behind the firewall. ZoneAlarm is the best right now for dynamic port control. or Black Ice, but Black Ice has an IDENT port hole in it. go to www.grc.com for more info on firewalls (only if needed!)
I hope I helped...
