    Hi all,

    Ive never done anything much like this before so forgive my lack of knowledge.

    However at the moment I have a friend who is on TalkTalk, and due to thier new range of IP's they are using which begin with 2.x he cannot access certain websites or login to certain games online.

    Getting this sorted is a seperate issue, however ive been thinking of a way round this in the meantime as a quick fix to help him out.

    How easy would it be to setup my home PC and internet connection as a proxy server to allow him access and tunnel his traffic through my connection so he can access what he wants to do?

    If I do need to use a seperate machine at home, I do have a laptop which I suppose I can use, if it would be up to the job?
  2. anything I don't mind
