Windows 98 Multi Homed Question

By Crakerjk ·
I am looking for something documented that states Win 98 SE supports Multiple NICs. I am planning a firewall solution for a small business that is installing DSL and don't really want to dedicate a NT box to the task if I dont have to. Does anyone know where I can find something documented that states Win 98 will do the task?

I would try the Windows 98 Resource Kit first. Chapter 15 Network adapters and protocols.

TechNet also indicates that Win98 is suitable for a firewall.

If your purpose is to share an Internet connection to users through DSL, I recommend a Linksys DSL/Router for less than $200. It has 4 10/100 ports and an uplink connection to your hub. It has a built-in Firewall and can support up to 253 users. Your DSL modem connects to the Linksys DSL/Router instead of your NIC. Point your URL to http://www.linksys.com

Under the Win95 training book from MS, it states. You can use 4 NICs with a total of 8 protocols. I have done this with 2 NICs using different protocols on each and different IP addresses. The hard part is getting the cards straight in your head in network properties.

Windows 98 Supports Multi-homing you do not need SE. See Page 606 Windows 98 Res Kit. States you can have "6 TCP/IP and 4 IPX/SPX instances on your system" As a given, just define separate address, mask, gateway for each card.
