This question already has an answer here:

I have a wired connection over a proxy server, and I'd like to share it over wireless to my other laptop. Is there some software or something that allows me to do this? I am using ubuntu 12.04 on the machine with wired Internet connection and windows 7 on other.

(It is diffferent from previously asked question as that is for home network not behind proxy server and my question is about the network behind proxy)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The proxy makes no difference to the question, AFAIK. –  Javier Rivera Feb 20 '13 at 8:43
But I am not able to get internet connection on other after following these steps. –  sam Feb 21 '13 at 5:46
Then please state exactly what you have tried, what failed and how and click ask for reopen. But without new information it is the same question. Or you can try the Ubuntu Forums, maybe it's format is better for you than the question-answer way we use here. –  Javier Rivera Feb 21 '13 at 8:12

Yes, and it is really easy using ubuntu, the only thing is that your ubuntu machine will need a wifi card to act as a personal hotspot.

Here is a link to a tutorial that works, hope it helps.
