How can I disable IP routing in win98se?
Posted on 2003-03-10
My home LAN looks like this:
dsl modem---router (486---hub---PC1 192.168.1.2
running | '---PC2 192.168.1.3
floppyfw) '-----PC3 192.168.1.4
The 3 PCs share a static IP. They all have 3com 3c509b network cards, which are configured the same way in Control Panel->Network->TCP/IP. Internally, they all recognize each other in Network Neighborhood and can transfer files among themselves. At some point before getting DSL, I had used the Home Networking Wizard to connect them internally. I don't know whether or not that is a factor in my problem.
PC1 will not connect to the Internet. When I try to surff, I get one of these messages:
"Cannot connect to remote server", or
"Connection closed by remote server."
PC1 is a dual-boot machine; under Linux, it connects fine.
I know of only two differences between PC1 and the other two machines:
1) ZoneAlarm is installed on PC1. However I have tried shutting down ZoneAlarm and it made no apparent difference.
2) "winipcfg" shows that PC1 has IP routing enabled; the other machines do not. I suspect that this is my culprit. I don't know *how* it got enabled. Can anyone tell me how to disable it?
(ps - the point value does not reflect my sentiments, but I'm new here and only have 90 points to work with)
