I am working around to find the best and simplest solution to this:

Assume we have a windows server 2008 R2 (name this A) with 2 network card configured, one is connected to Internet and another is connected to company LAN. so I am able to see both internet and LAN from this server A.

My PC (name it B) just connected to LAN and there is no internet connection on B.

The goal is to use the Internet of A on B.

I want to be able to input the IP address and port of A into B's browser e.g. Firefox (like a proxy server) and use the internet of A.

How can this possible using SSH, Socks Proxy, VPN or etc.

thanks in advance.


This LAN is our organization LAN that is governmental and I am not allowed to put a router or change the network setup. I have access to A remotely and my role is administrator on A. I can browse Internet on A, but it is a company businesses server! I don't want to open my email on that. I don't have Internet access on my desktop PC , B. hope I was clear guys!

    Its being downvoted because its a junk question. Why not buy a cheap $50 Linksys router, and actually put the server and workstations behind it? What goal (besides internet access) are you trying to achieve?

    Bah, the reason for the downvote you give I believe is appaling. Not everybody sees spending money as the solution. Instead this person is trying to think outside the square which should be appreciated. True, he may not have developed this site's skills of asking a question in a format its members are comfortable with but that is the course many of us take when starting somehwere new. Welcome to Serverfault vaheeds, I hope you've got a thick skin.

  • "Try **including attempted solutions**, why they didn't work, and the expected results" - those are the big reasons the question was closed in my opinion.

A quick search would yield you a result for Internet Connection Sharing.


  • this LAN is not a small office network. we have a separate DHCP server, DNS server, Gateway,Active Directory server , etc. Also I don't want to share the Internet all over the LAN, just in my PC.
