I have two computers on dial up.
Both are Windows 98 SE
In IE 6: tools/internet options/connections
host: dial whenever a conenction is not present
lan settings: automatically detect settings, Use proxy server 192.168.05 port 9090 advanced: http: 192.168.0.5 (use the same ...)
slave: (no modems, so no settings) automatically detect settings, use a proxy server, 192.168.0.5 (figuring host is the proxy) which is the same IP found in advanced.
In network neighborhood (rightclick, properties/hightlight TCP/IP
Network card/properties) specify 192.168.0.3 / 255.255.255.0 dns
host: ID Aptiva workgroup MSHOME - CONFIGURATION: 3@TCP/IP, 1@NETBUI -
IP: 192.168.0.5, 255.255.255.0
slave: ID: CTX workgroup MSHOME CONFIGURATION: 2@TCP/IP IP: 192.168.0.3 255.255.255.0 - DNS configuration: Aptiva (name of the host computer) domain (MSHOME) no gateway, bindiongs to client for Microsoft networks, file and printer sharing.
What is wrong? I try to get a web page on slave and all I get is DNS error.
ALSO, I bought a switch yesterday and I read ONCE that my ISP may double charge me if I use my duil up through a switch. Is this true?
