Sharing an Internet Connection using AOL Plus
Dennis885 Feb-15-01 06:09 PM
Is it possible to share an internet connection between two computers if I use AOL Plus DSL to connect to the internet? Also, would I just configure it as dial-up, since i still need to sign on to AOL before I'm connnected to the internet? Thanks

See MS Knowledge Base Artilce Q230223, How to Use AOL with Internet Connection Sharing, at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q230/2/33.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=ics%20aol&rnk=2&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=W98SE. The maximum number of network adapters that TCP/IP can be bound to is four. This limitation can be a problem with some version of AOL. I get everything I need or want, and some, from the Internet without AOL. Larry

Please let me know what you have found on this subject because I have tried every combination of settings without any luck. The only way I have found to share Aol Plus DSL connection is to use a 3rd party gateway/proxy server. I have found several that work fine, but all are far from easy to set up. I had used the win98se ICS with my dial-up connection for a long time and love it's simplicity. It is unfortunate that it won't work with our setup.
