Internet access sharing between two PCs

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

Hi,

Could someone suggest the simplest way to share a dial-up internet
connection (NOT broadband), between two PCs - one running WinXP Pro and the
other running Win98 or Win2000?

Thanks

    Do you expect both to be online at the same time? D.

    Make the XP machine the master, create the dial up connect
    on the XP machine. Connect the two computers with an
    Ethernet network (cross-over cable, hub or switch/router-std
    cable). The XP network wizard will explain it all. It
    requires both computers to be on for the slave to connect.
    It will seem slow.
