    ok we got it working.

    in the tcpip properties set it to allow client to set their own IP, its easier.

    now, my setup is like this:
    main computer IP is 192.168.0.95 it has no routing or ICS installed.
    I have one NIC to my network, on my netowrk i have a router, its IP is 192.168.0.1

    on the dialing computer we set the properties to:
    IP: 192.168.0.200
    SM: 255.255.255.0

    DNS: 192.168.0.1
    Gateway: 192.168.0.1


    so it seems we can only access the internet because the router is forwarding the packets, not the computer. so i think yer options are either get a hardware router then it can be setup as above, or using ICS will only work if you are dialing into another computer on the same network as the ICS computer, in that case you set the dns and gateway to the ICS computers IP.

    I'm not sure weather a router software other than ICS will allow it to route though, it may.

    Beefy can post more if its not clear enough.

That exculdes workstation. And Windows 2000 Server or above. Again, that excludes profesional. I'm sure that you've got WinXP Professional or Home, which do not come with remote access server capabilities. I don't think dialing into that machine would be possible without some third party software. Does Windows XP even have dial-up server? That may be an option, but I don't think it'll work. Not without some third party remote access server software.

    But lets say that you somehow dial into that network, you're gonna need some type of software that can act as a router and route packets between the modem you're dialing into on that computer and the modem or nic or whatever that is actually establishing the internet connection. For that you'll need something like winproxy or some other connection sharing software.

    I thought I might have to put server on it but i AM TRYING TO AVOID that to keep it legal but if I have to i WILL

    If it works, you guys should be proud. I didn't think it would work without some fairly extensive ISP-like provider software not to mention, software coded for just one user dialing in to a regular PC with a plain modem.

    You maybe should even consider making a step by step 'how to' and then putting it up as an article on Tweaktown. If you describe it with all the likely search terms that might be used to look for it, Tweaktown will get a bunch of hits through google. Not to mention, the people looking for a 'How - To' on that will be of the 'upper crust' if you know what I mean. Drop a link to the forums at the bottom, and we'll be welcoming in the smart guys in no time. :D
