If you do not want to use proxy server, use Internet sharing through NAT.
It will solve your problem.

And you can do that either by using some software like "FireStarter" or configuring iptables .
See Internet Sharing in Linux .

Create the script as below and follow the instruction in same

  # Defines the location of iptables executables.
iptables=/sbin/iptables
 
  #Clears if any old iptable rules/ policies are there.
iptables --flush -t nat

 # Now we will do Masquerading ie. we are doing NAT.
iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
iptables --append FORWARD --in-interface eth0 -j ACCEPT

 # Enabling packet forwarding.
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward


# Copy this file to /etc/rc.d/rc.nat
# make it executable : chmod 7555 /etc/rc.d/rc.nat
# Now add following lines in rc.local
# /etc/rc.d/rc.nat
# this will allow to set your machine as gateway at every startup
