yes its quite simple. the BEST way is to get your hands on Vicom Internet Gateway. www.vicomtech.com. it will however cost you. There is another solution called IPNetRouter which is free but doesnt offer all the features of vicom. IpNetRouter is at http://www.sustworks.com/products/ipnm/demo/readme.html...i have used both with a 56k modem on a 6100 shared with a powercenter pro, 8600, 7200, and a filthy little ibm thinkpad...yick...anyway thatll do it fer ya.

You can not share a modem other than switching it between machines. You may be able to share IP addresses through some of the software mentioned above.

yes you CAN share the modem but not for things like Zterm. it can be shared for faxing with faxstf and can certainly be shared for internet use. im afraid terminal apps are out though.
