WinSock SW Question

I was told that there is some WinSock software that can be used to connect all your computers to one phone line for an internet connection.

Server: PC running Windows NT
All Workstations: PCs running Win95

The server and one workstation have modems. But we only have one phone line for the connection. We are connected to a local ISD.

Could you please tell me what software this could be and some guidlines on how to set it up.

Thanks

Just go to www.windows95.com anbd search for WINGATE then


-Download Wingate for W95 or NT depending on which os the lineserver is running.
-Make SURe you request an evaluation key, without it the software wqill not work.
-Establish a working tcp/IP system on your network
-Install wingate on the lineserver
-Run WG2UTIL on ALL the workstations.
-Enjoy

One more question. Is there any legal problem with using this kind of software or is this like hooking up your tv to the cable? Were if you are at the same residents you can hookup for one flat fee to as many TVs as you want..
