To use the Internet on another computer

By shaziluv ·
I want to connect to Internet and email on a Windows 98 Computer, from a Windows NT4
computer.

My question is how can I share the modem or internet and email, on the Win 98
Computer, and then be able access it on the Win NT4
computer? Both computers are on a LAN Network. The computer with Windows NT4 is my server.

Regards

Sharon

Assuming that the NT4 machine is running NT server, you can use the routing and remote access service on the server. There is pleanty of help for this sevice on the microsoft Technet website.

If you are running workstation, maybe look at running a third party Proxy server product like Proxy + (full product benifits) and AnalogX Proxy (connection only). Both products are free and provide information on how to configure each of your PC's

I hope this information helps.

Cheers

Windows 98 SE has a feature you can install which would allow you to share the internet connection with other computers. I believe this is called ICS.
If you want to access the computer and not use the 98 machine as a pass-through connection then you can get PcAnywhere or VNC (free remote software)

A lot depends on which computer has the physical connection. WinNT does not come with the capability of sharing a connection, but Win98 does. If your Win98 machine has the connection, install and configure Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on thatmachine. Any PC on your LAN will be able to access the Internet through that connection.

If the WinNT machine has the connection, install a free proxy, such as AnalogX, to share it. You'll need to configure the other PC to use a proxy server,and set the port to 6588, rather than the default port 80.

By the way, Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) should allow this, but in four years of trying I've never found a way to do so. There is plenty of documentation, but all of it is meaningless babble. After years of trying to decipher the cryptic bull in the Microsoft docs, I installed Proxy Server 2.0 and managed to get everyone connected. With a Win98 PC available, though, you should be able to avoid that cost. ICS makes it fairly easy.

Hello Sharon,

There are different ways to do it, the easiest one, I think, is to use a third part software such as WinProxi, Microsoft Proxi Server or WinRoute. The easiest one is to install WinRoute on your Server, it is pretty easy to use and is not expensive. For more information about this software you can visit the URL: www.tinysoftware.com.
I installed it on my network and it works just fine, it also provides some security aspects you should consider to, it has a NAT and it is very ease to use.
If you need more information about it just e-mail me back.

Good luck,

@lberto

First install Microsoft RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Service), you can download it from MS website. It is advanced & combined version of NT routing service and RAS. It has NAT (Network Address Translation) features that needed in your problem. NAT will translate local address of client IP packet to internet address of your NT server, so client can access Internet.
You also can use MS Proxy Server 2.0 that have caching capability, but it's not free.
