DSLinux: Open port 120 and proxy through


Here is a problem I am having. I download off the news server, and my ISP does not give me full line speeds with the 5 threads they allow. If I dial another PPPOE session on another computer, I can get more speed. I then realized I can create numerous virtual PC's and just proxy through them (allowing full bandwidth speed). I have been able to run Damn Small Linux in Virtual PC and get the internet working, but how do I open port 120 and proxy through it so I can download through the news server?

Thank you
