i want you to tell me how to set up so that connection will be made every time i wanna get on line from the clients.
will just setting up the connection and setting it up to be shared do this or do i have to go to the routhing and set up the NAT or not.

Yes there is a way to do it. Win2000 comes standard with a feature called "Internet Connection Sharing". Have a look at the microsoft site : http://support.microsoft.com/search/

For this article under the Windows 2000 section : Q237254 - How to Enable Internet Connection Sharing on a Network Connection

Once you do the setup you should be on your way :-)

Cheers ....

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection:

In Control Panel, double-click Network and Dial-Up Connections.

Right-click the connection you want to share, and then click Properties.

On the Sharing tab, click to select the Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this connection check box.

If the connection you are sharing is a Dial-up connection and you want the connection to dial automatically when another computer on your network attempts to use external resources, click to select the "Enable on-demand dialing" check box.

You might have to set up the Static IP address. Microsoft likes using the range 192.168.0.1/24

This should have you up and away in no time.

This is all that has to be done. No routing needs to be set except in TCP/IP settings where the default gateway should be the same as the PC that is sharing the internet connection.

Hope this helps

Cheers ....

There are probably better applications like Wingate to use with internet connection sharing rather than the MS provided one. The best route, however, is to use a 56K dialup router. The router handles all connections to the isp, so that you stay upa greater percentage of the time, and the router dials more quickly and more reliably than a server computer usually. We recently put one in for our sister company which does internet sales, and it reduced the most problem prone area of the business to something we no longer have to think about.
