If you must
have the server as the internet gateway you will have to dump the static IP for the laptop and set up the ghastly MS Internet Connection Sharing (now I think about it I don't know if that lets you define proxies?).
Otherwise I'd say put a switch/router between the Server and the Modem and plug your laptop in there. That way you keep your static IP and the server can still act as a proxy.
Just my thoughts.
