CCProxy is a software package created by Youngzsoft. It can be configured to act as a network address translator for a local area network (LAN) to offer access to the Internet. As well as acting as a gateway to Internet access, it can be used as a content filter, blocking access to a list of banned sites. CCProxy works on the Microsoft Windows environment and is compatible with the following versions: Win 98, WinME, WinNT, Win 2000, WinXP, Win 2003, Vista, Win 7 and Win 2008. For this guide it is assumed that CCProxy is being installed on a computer that has access to the Internet. It is assumed that this computer has the LAN address 192.168.0.1 and all the other computers on the LAN have subsequent addresses, such as 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.3 and so on.
