I have poured through the Winroute 4.x Pro manual and still find myself asking questions that the manual didn't cover.
I want to connect 4 PCs to the internet via one IP connection. My concern begins with the fact that Pac Bell (our ISP) now tells me they use dynamic IP addressing and PPPoE to PREVENT/DISCOURAGE users from trying to setup proxy servers while only paying for one account.
1. Can Winroute still use its NAT if the ISP assisgns a dynamic IP address?
2. Does PPPoE prevent me from using Winroute and it's NAT?
3. Can someone step me through assigning /seting up the other 4 workstations to access the internet simultaneously? (i.e. TCP/IP setup on the individual workstations, the submask/DNS? settings?)
I realize this could be a tedious question, but I think it could prove beneficial to many others who try to setup a similar system?
We are using Windows 98/OS and are connected using Microsoft's printer/file sharing (Microsoft networking).
Please advise what other information I may need to provide to help you help me!
Thank you in advance!
