Re: proxy address

If you are using a proxy with a public ip configured on the outside interface you really dont need to nat it again on the router..

Re: proxy address

but i thought that internet uses port 80

Re: proxy address

Definitely web traffic uses port 80. But when you setup proxy server on your browser, all traffic (say you want to browse to www.yahoo.com) is redirected by the browser to the proxy server by opening a session (TCPIP on port 3080 - say that is the proxy server port). The proxy will receive the url from the client, opens a new session to yahoo.com, gets the web page, caches it, and then sends the page back to the client.
