    I hope you resolve this but just a quick question. Have you purchased Winproxy yet? There's a better hardware option available using a Linksys BEFSR41 or BEFSR11 router to connect multiple PCs to a single connection using one IP address. It's uses NAT to allow you to share one IP simultaneously. The router costs about $75, about the same cost as Winproxy, and can be picked up any CompUsa or BestBuy. I know quite a few people that had been using Winproxy but switched to the new routers. They work extremely well, can support up to 255 PCs and are easy to setup using DHCP. It takes about 5 minutes to set one up and your done. They also have their own built in hardware firewall.

    Anyway, that's just another option if you can't get Winproxy to work correctly.

    Good luck .....

    I went though the free trial period with WinProxy and had no problems at all so I purchased it back in September, haven't really had many problems with it until the past few weeks.

    I will keep that in mind if this doesn't get resolved, however Linksys does make good products.

    This may sound like it's coming out of left field, but have you reinstalled tcp/ip?
    Had a customer last night that could only send email to certain addresses but other's wouldn't send. Using the same smtp protocol in the tcp/ip stack so never thought of reinstalling it.
    Finally uninstalled the tcp/ip, rebooted and reinstalled it. It worked. At this point, it can't hurt.

    And I'll just add for what it's worth. If it's been working for some time now and this just started to occur, if you have access to another PC, hook it up and see if the same thing happens as a client. If so, I'd try reinstalling WinProxy.
