Question

Consolidate multiple IPs as Proxy server

My ISP allows me to get multiple public IPs from a single modem. There is only one ethernet port on the modem, but if I connect 5 devices to it via a switch, each will have it's own public ipv4 address. IPs are dynamic but stay reserved for a while to the last accessing MAC address.
I want to dedicate a pc to act as a proxy server, allowing remote connection to these IPs.
Please give me your suggestions how can I do this, as my networking knowledge is not that good and I have no idea how to approach this. I'd prefer to make this on Windows OS without coding, but any information and guidance will be of great help!

Step 1. Find and install a Proxy Server.

Step 2. Configure such per the supplier.

As you can imagine I won't be able to pick or support such but my bet is you really didn't want a proxy server as it's not like a connection to a router or your ISP at all. However you did ask for a PROXY SERVER so I must take your word you know what you are asking for.

Thanks for replying

The complexity in my case comes from me wanting not just one porxy server
I want to do this not for one IP but for 6-7 IPs that I can all get from my ISPs modem on the same cable just by requesting them with different MAC addresses.
But I don't want to connect 6-7 PCs and install a proxy server on each one of them and have them always on, I need a solution, if possible, to do this from one PC.

The proxy server goes on ONE PC.

So one PC runs the PROXY SERVER and the other PCs are configured to use the PROXY.

Again I worry here you didn't want to setup a PROXY system. But again I only have what you asked for above.

nope

You can't do that with an isp's ip numbers. There isn't any advantage of using more than one outside ip number because the number of up to down RF channels used on the cable modem stays the same. In reality, you are dividing your bandwidth between those ip addresses.

Get a router so you can use your connection at full speed.
If you need to set up remote connections, do that via a router and get an ddns address, and set up your remote connection.

Proxy servers either cache or forwards infrastructure connections, so its not really what you are looking for.
