Connecting PC's to the Internet thru a Power MAC

I'm trying to connect one or more PC's to the internet by using a Power MAC as gateway. So far I've managed to get the MAC to connect to a FTP server running on a NT server, but I don't know how to do it the other way around.

Is there a way to get the MAC working as a gateway, which will allow the use of HTTP/FTP/IRC/ICQ/Email etc from one or more PC's?

Pls answer asap as I really need to get this working as quickly as I possibly can.

Thnx

what is a multilingual bridge???

It would be a lot easier if you'd tell me what things are instead of just telling me to use it.

where can I get it etc etc...

Thnx

you need vicom internet gateway. www.vicomtech.com. i use it in my apt and it works beautifully. its NOT free however. you might want to look into IPNet Router. which IS free but lacks some features. check on versiontracker.com for the latest Net Router.

ah why thank you....did you check out IP Net router? While lacking in features it may do all you need and it is CHEAP.

Yes, I actually did check both programs out but I find the Internet Gateway much better as it puts in a new item in the TCP/IP settings instead of you having to "fiddle" with the TCP/IP settings already there.
As a matter of fact, I couldn't really figure out how to use the IP router but I think it's because I tried using the macs IP address as DNS server... (Not used to connecting MACs and PCs)

Anyway, thank you for directing me to that site :)
