Arescom 800 on home network
unitedlinux Jun-07-02 00:51 AM
I have a Linux server running DCHCP and Samba and a Web server. I have two Win98 boxes connected to that network. I recently got an Arescom 800 DSL modem that works fine when connected directly to one of my Win98 PCs. However, I want all of these computers to have access to the web. As I understand, MSN only lets me connect one PC to the Web through my Arescom modem. From the posts around the web, however, it appears that there is a workaround. I haven't found any luck solving this problem. Can anyone help?

Are you using a hub or a switch now, and does your DSL modem have an ethernet connection or USB? If its a ethernet ... I would get a router.

Agree... The workaround is a NAT (network address translator). That can be implemented with Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) in Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 Pro, or XP or a third part soultion such as SyGate. I believe Linux can do it as well, but have not installed Linux yet. The Windows solutions require two network adapters in the PC running the ICS host software. The best solution is to replace the hub with broadband router, which also has a NAT (http://duxcw.com/faq/ics/diffrout.htm). http://www.duxcw.com/dcforum/DCForumID2/1170.html. Larry
