Internet connection sharing on Win98
Posted on 2000-04-29
I have two machines, one of which dual-boots win2k with win98 SE ("A" machine), the other (B) has only win2k.
I can share my dsl in "win2k" of A machine with B machine. But I cannot share it in "win98" of A machine with B machine: I cannot go on the net from my B machine when A machine is booted into Win98.
A strange thing is, on win98, when I set the DNS in the properties of my 3COM NIC (external network), the properties of my ISA NIC (internal network) automatically copies the address. If I deleted them in My 3Com, my ISA NIC also delete them. Both NICs uses TCP/IP protocol.
In win2k, I can set different DNS addresses for internal network and external network, and Win2k has an option of Internet Connection Sharing. But in Win98, again the DNS address I set for internal network copies to external network and vice versa. And win98 doesn't have internet connection sharing.
My external network properties: IP-> given by my ISP; subnet 255.255.255.0; gateway->also given; Pri. and Sec. DNS -> also given.
My internal network: IP 126.96.36.199, DNS-> always copies the DNS addresses I set for my external network but I want it to be the same as my IP (188.8.131.52)
How can I get around with this problem?
*I posted this problem in Win95 Networking. But no one seems to be a help.
