Having tried it and switched to this:


I would recommend Analog Proxy over PPPshare, moreover Analog Proxy
is free.

(run and install on main box, set use proxy server on all other
networked boxes and it will handle:
HTTP (web), HTTPS (secure web), POP3 (receive mail), SMTP (send
mail), NNTP (newsgroups), FTP (file transfer), and Socks4/4a and
partial Socks5 (no UDP) protocols!

Much easier to set up than ICS.

Have fun
