For $90 dollars you can get a good program called WINPROXY, it will accomplish that task very nicely

You can also use Windows 2000 and Windows 98 SE - they both have Internet Connection Sharing.

I vote for Internet Connection Sharing as long as the computer with the modem is Win98SE or 2k.  I just set up My 98SE and my daughter's 98 computer with ICS and it was relatively simple.  The only snag I hit (and got the answer here) was that the client needs to have the IP address dynamically assigned.  192.168.0.1 is the host computer's IP address and the client receives it's ip address at boot.  It works very well and you can (supposedly) link as many as you want.  Keep in mind that all are using one connection and they will get slower as you add more activity to the one connection.  I am in the country and the connection I usually get is 26400.  With both of us on it is rather slow.

I agree with above advise, I have hooked up modem sharing software and winproxy, they work fine. As slink9 indicated if you are running 98SE or w2k then it has the ability built right in, my two cents worth. Dave

Thanks for the help. I like the fact that you did it to. I accept the answer mostly for that reason.
