Share an internet connection with a Win98 PC
Authored by: BigCatTamer on Jul 31, '04 09:49:44AM

Many thanks. Finally, our new Emac on Panther is sharing the dialup with our Windows XP and 98 machines. We are hooked up via a router and I had set the router and DNS entries on the Emac to the router IP, not the XP server's IP. I disabled the DHCP on the router and manually set IP on the XP (192.168.0.1) and Emac (192.168.0.2) with subnet mask 255.255.255.0. Win98's IP must be assigned automatically for ICS to work. In the dial-up properties on the XP machine, under the advanced tab, check all 3 sharing options and XP will dial-up automatically when Safari is clicked on the mac! Of course, the XP server must be turned on, but mine's always crunching SETI@Home anyway! (I know it's a Mac site, just threw the last in in case someone's struggling with the same setup.)
