NT ROUTER

Ah, I have a question as below:
Supporse inside internal lan, one NT server having dialup adapter(modem) connect to ISP and have been assigned IP address by DHCP from ISP, also having network adapter connected to internal lan(ip address is say 100). As default , the routing betweeen network card and dial up adapter is enable,
In the same internal Lan, there are one win95 client  with  network adapter (with fixed ip address =101 ) and set the gateway address to poitn the NT server(ie ip=100).  
My question is as below:
when win95 client try to ping any exiting internet host , what will happne? is it ok?
I just think it is possible that the NT server can route the IP packet from WIN95 client to internet via its dialup adapter.?
please  tell me if it is.  thanks.

Yes, it would work provided that the IP address of the Win95 client computer is a valid IP address for the ISP.  If you are using "internal" numbers for the NT and 95 box (like 192.168.0.100 & 192.168.0.101) then it will not work.  The ISP will reject your packet.  Usually the ISP will only provide you with a single IP address on a dial-up connection for point-to-point from your dialing machine to their modem server.  

One solution to this is to use a PROXY server.  One good and inexpensive one that I have used in the past is WinGate.  It manages client requests and does them on behalf of your internal client computer.  See www.wingate.net.
