Internet sharing (IP masquerading)

By frankl27 ·
I know that WIN980SE allows you to setup internet sharing.

However, for some reason I can't set it up on my machine here at work and I believe it's related to the Novell network. How does one set this up without using the WIN98-SE Internet sharing device?

There are may shareware/freeware utilities to do what you need instead of 98SE IS program, It will have some problems withe cilent versioni 3.2 and up. Check www.download.com and search for modem sharing

A program that I found was "The Handy Dandy
Analogx Proxy Server". This program allows you to share connections from one machine to another. I use DSL and is great for that. The program uses IP addresses for sharing. Supports many protcols and oneprogram that can't be used is ICQ..Big whoop. AIM and MS Messenger are fine.
Find this at:>http://www.analogx.com<
Good Luck

While AnalogX's proxy server is good, Ocitis' WinProxy is the way to go (and for $60 for 3 simultaneous connections, you can't beat it). It has several levels of service, from simple NAT to full blown firewall. Check it out at www.winproxy.com.By the way, it supports shared dial-up connections, too.

Another option I am using more and more of is modem routers. Netsurf makes one as well as WebRamp. Its basically a router with one or more built in modems. You just put the IP address of the modem router in the Gateway setting of your TCP/IP applet. They dial on demand and have no limitations to connections, with the exception of choked bandwidth. There is generally configuration software included for setting up filters etc. I have found some true Proxy software to be a pain because many secure web sites can't get past the proxy server. The sites expect to see an actual IP address at your desktop and things get tangled up at the proxy server. I find true NAT or IP Masq is more like "the real thing" and more transparent to the network.
