It depends on what kind of proxy server you want to write. If you're writing a sockets level, SOCKS proxy server you could implement that on top of Socket and ServerSocket. That's chapter 9 and 10. Chapter 2 would also be helpful for understanding just what proxy servers and network application do. If you just want an HTTP proxy server, you'd still end up using Socket and ServerSocket, However, you'd also want to read chapter 3, 7, and 15 to get a better understanding of what goes on under the hood of typical web browsers and servers.
