Ok, now it is not possible, but would it be any time ?

We have some dialup intranet that wanted to connect to the University
proxy. One solution is to use the win95 Tin client, but that envolves
having an firewall with masquerade, and to get even worst, there's 
no Tin's Client for linux, so the masquerade machine can't process
It would be easier to have one proxy in the dialup router, serving
the intranet (linux, windows, etc), and still participating in the
proxy from the group.

Can't you make one proxy that can forward to another proxy ?
To when the Tin's client for linux ? (or some other multi-block client)
