Internet Sharing

The simplest way is to put a network interface card into each computer and connect them together with a CAT5 crossover cable.

In Network Neighbourhood select the TCP/IP properties of the NIC card on the main machine (the one that connects to the internet) and in the IP ADDRESS section set it to 192.168.0.1 with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. In the slave computer, set the IP address to 192.168.0.2 and the subnet mask again to 255.255.255.0

Next, grab a copy of Proxy freeware, found at http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network.htm and install it into both computers.

On the slave machine, open IE and go to Tool/Internet Options/Connections and open the LAN settings. In the Proxy section, add 192.168.0.1 to all fields. The Portsetting should be 21 for FTP, 1080 for Socks and 6588 for everything else.

Make sure file sharing is enabled on both computers and reboot both. You will be able to have internet access on the slave computer.

On your Win 98 Machine Click Start, Control Panel, double click Add/Remove Programs, click Windows Setup Tab, double click Internet Tools, Check Internet Connection Sharing, click OK, follow the instructions on the SCREEN.

On your W2K Pro Machines install NIC adapters (your win 98 must have an adapter too). Connect all three machines by ethernet cables, use straight cables if you are going to use a hub, a crossover cable if no hub is intended. (ask computer store for the correct cable). Once the three machines are connected, go to W2k Machine, one at a time, click Internet Explorer, after Page Cannot be Displayed error is returned by the browser, click Tools, Click Internet OPtion, Click Connection, Click Lan Settings, click Autmatically Detect Settings, Click OK.

But before that see to it that your w2K Pro are configured to obtain IP address automatically. (right click Network Places, Click Properties, Right Click Local Area Connection Icon, highlight TCP/IP, click properties,check the OPtion to obtain IP automatically).
