ProxyServer Installation Manual
Features
Introduction
Welcome to one of Multi-Tech's family of ProxyServers. The
information provided in this Installation Manual enables you to
unpack, install, and configure your ProxyServer. A list of specifications is included, and you are referred to the ProxyServer User
Guide for step-by-step procedures for setting up your LAN clients
for surfing the Internet.
ProxyServer
The ProxyServer acts as a central dial-out Internet access point
for all your network clients. It enables all your network clients to
simultaneously share one modem or ISDN TA, a regular dial-up
account from your ISP, and a single IP address that can be either
dynamic or static.
Client PC
To configure the ProxyServer, one of your Windows 95 or Windows NT client PCs on the LAN must have a CD ROM drive for
installing the ProxyServer Utilities that are necessary for configuring and operating your ProxyServer.

ProxyServer Installation
Note: Before starting installation, if the serial connector of your
modem or ISDN TA has only 9 pins, obtain an appropriate serial
adapter or short cable to connect it to the 25-pin WAN connector
on your ProxyServer.
1. Attach the ProxyServer WAN port to the serial port on the back
of your modem or ISDN TA. Tighten both fasteners until the
ProxyServer is secure.
2. Connect a 10BaseT (RJ-45) cable from the ProxyServer LAN
port to your LAN hub.
3. Connect the power adapter to the power input jack on the back
of the ProxyServer, then connect the power adapter to a
grounded wall socket; note that the red (power) LED lights.

be installed on any Windows 95 or Windows NT client on the same
network as your ProxyServer. In the example shown below, the
