WinSock SW Question

Posted on 1997-08-05

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

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..
