    old espresso box as a proxy

    Looking at tablets and connection to the internet, we use the LA's proxy settings, no user login just an ip and a port. Read on here of others with issues over connection of android tablets, and using espresso a a proxy, would i have to set our old espresso box up as a proxy to allow connection? Getting slightly confussed?

    Imagine you might be able to use such a thing as a transparent proxy so you could upstream to LA. Wouldn't bother mysefl, probably less hassle to set up squid

    Agreed, you'd probably have to format the old cachepilot anyway to get it to do what you want.

    I use my android tablet no probs in a whole bunch of schools android 3 lets you have proxy settings per wireless network so its just a simple matter of setting them when you create the wireless profile
