Shared Modem

I have 2 computers networked together, one Windows95 the other Windows98.  How do I setup the Windows98 modem as a shared resource so I can us it from the Windows95 machine?  I am not interested in simultaneous internet connections since my ISP is AOL.  I just don't want to buy a second modem.

Raym111, Windows 98 will only share a modem if you have a true Lan type network assembled. Merely using Microsoft Networking or peer-to-peer won't do it. You can use Lantasic from Artisoft or Browsegate see: http://www.netcplus.com/browsegate.htm

You may install Internet Connection Sharing on Windows 98 (is avaiable on Win98 CD), if you have TCP/IP instaled on both computer.....but the local network must be deconcted from the other network. It is very simple read the documentation
