I have Linux Redhat 8 on a laptop and I have managed to connect it to my Windows XP server (I know I should have done it the other way around). My Linux laptop can see the shares on the XP machine. The problem is I want the Linux box to use the modem on the XP machine. The modem is shared o.k because I can connect with Windows 2000 and Win98 o.k. The network connection must be o.k because I can see the shared directories on the XP box.
So how do I get my Linux box to use the modem on the XP machine?
