Hi,

can you clarify what you are asking? It seems to me that you are asking how to configure a machine running windows to be a router. Is that correct?

Hi,

this is achieved by configuring your windows machine as a router. I think in the windows world they call this "sharing internet". I am not a windows user so I can't help. However, I put "how to share internet windows" into my favourite search engine and saw lots of promising hits.

HTH,

Evo2.

To connect two machines directly you may need to use a CAT5 crossover network cable rather than a standard patch cable. I'm not sure if modern RJ45 connections can sense and adjust the polarity of connections when wired directly.
(It's like connecting "send to send" and "receive to receive" rather than "send to receive" and "receive to send" if you er... follow. )

Play Bonny!
