Proxy setup through Router?

Is there any router/switch/hub that would allow me
change connection like this:

PC=>Router=>CableModem=>WEB

into:

PC=>Router=>("Proxified" address)=>CableModem=>WEB

Is there way to send all network traffic through
external proxy service using just router settings?

None that I've seen. You would need to run proxy software on the PC or use a dedicated PC as a proxy server.

I could, theoretically, pop doubleNIC in some old PC and use
it as switch.

I even remember there was some freeware (I think it was Linux
based) that would re-format PC and setup whole PC as
firewall/router. Unfortunately I do not remember name of it.

But the biggest question is will I be able to sent traffic
through any third party proxy services (eg. from www.publicproxyservers.com).

Looking at the weblink you gave, you would set that up as follows:
PC=>LAN Router=>Cable Modem=> Proxy Server (IP Address)=>Website or location you wish to access.

You steer your traffic through this "external" 'Proxy Server' to for example = be anonymous.

Feel free to comment or question.

Yes, usage of "external" 'proxy server' is what I am looking for.
But thing is - I am not sure what ports is going to be
used for communication. So I am trying to sort of steer all of
traffic from some specific client on network through external proxy.

You say:>>>From some specific client It will have it's own ports associated with it as a client. Don't need to worry about that. OK??

Comments??

The scenario you describe sounds like you need ISA Server from microsoft. Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server is a firewall & proxy server installed on either Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003. When you install the server with ONE NIC only, it is a proxy server only (no firewall capability). With TWO NICs installed, it becomes a full bone firewall with proxy & SNAT capability.

Search for "Transparent proxy server"

I had my linux router set up to route HTTP requests through a proxy server. The server was local, but using an external one is just using a different address to redirect to.

Thank you all for response.
How would I set it up so it would work not only
for web browsing but for everything.

You seemed to have gotten the general, and have got the specific somewhat. What application or client do you want to have use the proxy??? It should have some where in the set up of that client to specify the address of the proxy. Some external proxies, once you are connected to them, run all you different clients data through themselves.

I just use one external proxy because to watch a certain TV station I need an IP in that country. I use the proxy to go through to look like I have an IP in that country. I just hook up to the proxy, it provides me a field to enter a URL, I do so, the website comes up sets up the ports needed to work with Media Player on 'my' computer and handles all the negotiations. I would like to suggest you be a bit more explicit here on what you want to achieve, or just go for it on the proxy and come back with your problems if you have any.

Your example on TV is very close.
Only in my situation- client is not computer and traffic is UDP.
And I need to sent it through proxy.

suggestions?

Wow, that's different, and UDP. Ok, just remember that what you want to do is a client server relationship, like most file/traffic transfers, and the proxy is just a dumb computer in the middle that you may have some control over or not, depending on the proxy. What I am trying to say is see if you can find a proxy and do some testing on what you want to try to do. Play with it, and remember the relationship.

When you were saying that your client is not a computer, that is ok, for I was thinking of the client as an application. That is who is really a client, like a browser, email client, and stuff is served up to them.

Experiment and tell how it is doing, ok??
