Sharing Modem Connections

By craig.a.muth ·
I know that with Windows I can share modems, but can I share the modem connection with Windows 98 or Windows 2000. If not, what program can I use to share the connection.

In Widows 98 use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). It must be custom installed from the Windows 98 CD. A typical installation will not install it. Use Contol Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Windows Setup tab, Internet Tools, and Details. It is at the top of the list.

I understand that I need to do a special install on Win 98 to get ICS, but what I really need to know is whether I can share an active phone line with another computer? If I can't with Win 98, what product can I use to do this?

Hello,

You can try using a proxy or a gate to share modem connection.
