Connection sharing

By javaidasgher ·
i have 2 servers running windows 2000 server and 8 workstations running on windows 98.
I want to be able to make the servers share internet multiple dialup connection to increase speed of internet on workstations. both servers are connected to internet using seperate dialup connections. Is there anyway to configure workstations to use both connections at a time. dialup connections are of two different ISPs. Is it possible then how?
or is there anyother solution to share multiple connections.or is there a way to use two different dialup connections at the same time on the same server.

OK, you sound a tiny bit confused. Here is how it works.
-When you have 2 Win2k Servers that have dialups, you enable ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on them and you go to the workstations and you tell them to *Automatically Discover Proxy Server* (this setting accessed from Control Panel)
That's It!

I answered the other posting to this question.

As I see it, the situation is not that simple.

Auto detect proxy doesn't offer enough control over the outbound dynamics of the two ISP dialups.

It sounds like jd wants a combined bandwidth effect. That would have to be set up using routing protocols and triggered dial up.

True, the internet connection sharing would do the trick for one system, but it would not balance the load between tow dialups. Nor would it effectively combine thetwo connections' bandwidth for a "double decker".

I suggest setting up the routing packages in both systems, adjust DDR settings on the dialup connections, each of which will be "routed" through the ethernet port to the network. Specify priority of service on one machine, and load balancing on both.

Prettty conceptual I know. But it's more fun working out the details.

Probably u r making things complex, make only one connection to ISP and install proxy service in your server, your proxy server will be child and your ISP proxy should-be parent.
