Hello all at Linksysinfo, i have a few questions that you may be able to assist me with since i am a complete networking newb and have been tearing at my scalp for the past 24 hours trying to research. I 'basically' want to route an attached device (PS3) on my Linksys E4200 router (Victek RAF) through another attached device (WinXP Laptop) which will be running as a proxy server, hopefully with some encryption. I know it is possible to enable connection sharing in WinXP and just connect the PS3 directly to the laptop, however the laptop only has one wired port and i don't want to use the wireless connection. I also still need the PS3 to maintain usage of the DMZ and QoS prioritizing. So im a little confused here regarding how this is done if i will be connecting through the WinXP laptop, i don't think putting the laptop in the DMZ is a good idea (!?) unless of course i limit its connections to my local network only. No idea how. I do have another router (WRT54GL with old tomato fw) if this is of any use. I was beginning to look into static routes, vLan, etc on the router but after researching and configuring proxies and encryption methods (privoxy, OpenVPN, m0n0wall, WANem, etc) my brain is truly out of steam. On a side note, on the WinXP laptop im intending to create a delay (WANem) and an encrypted proxy (undecided software) for the PS3 to route through. If anyone knows a good approach to this and how to get WANem (or alternative) to work with the proxy then i shall truly buy thee a drink via Paypal. Thanks very much.
