UNIXer,

Actually, I have a LAN with two machines, a Solaris X86 (never use dialup networking) and a WinNT (use dialup networking by PPP). Which IP address is the best for assigning the Solaris X86 machines? Can I use the IP address which I use in office as it is not the ISP I use (not within the domain of the ISP)?

What is loopback address?

You could try to install MS Proxy server and Assign both machines to the same network eg 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2. when your PP P link is up, all http and ftp will go through proxy.

Loopback is always 127.0.0.1 as far as I know

I am using Windows NT Workstation, but not Windows NT Server !
So, I think I cannot install the proxy server !

And can I assign the IP addres that I used in office as they never turn on at the same time ?
