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 ( and Emac ( with subnet mask 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.)
