I have a number of win95 machines in a network and only one have a modem. I need to configure it so that each one of them would be able to "see" tcp layer, that is - when it'll try to access the tcp/ip the connection on the machine with the modem will be initiated to the isp. Also all of the machines will be able to work with this connection together (sort of software routing). Can I do it through w95 configuration? Do I need third party software?
Thanx.

An old roomate and i did this through wingate or Sygate, some third party software off the net.  You set one machine as the "server" with the modem.  the other are assigned IP addresses and route to the "server" through a hub.  It worked very well for us.

Use the WinProxy software. You will have to install this software on the PC that has the modem and it will perform routing to other PC's through the LAN. It is a great software for this job.

Also, regarding your question "Can I do it through w95 configuration?", the answer is NO. You need a third party software.
