Hey Guys i've got 2 nics in my fedora pc and i would like to configure it so that one of them runs from the router to the nic and the other one from the nic to switch.

What I'm trying to achieve is having a proxy server so people on the network don't have total access to the net and can not bypass the proxy server....

Here's A small text based diagram of that i'm trying to do...

Fedora Box ( nic 1)
Fedora Box ( nic 2)

I just don't know how to configure each nic so that it works properly any ideas guys and girls ?

The easiest way I've found is to use an app called Firestarter. It has a good setup gui that gets it running in just a few minutes. Check this site out http://www.fs-security.com/ and install it using this command:
yum install firestarter
To really make it work the way you want, you should investigate using a squid proxy set up to run transparently on port 80 for the internal lan. The setup you envision can work, but it will take some research and lots of questions on this forum. Let us know if you need more help.
