Web Sharing between Win2k and OS 8 ( on IMac )

Hi All,
   I have a pc running on Win2k and previously had another one running on win98. Both of them where connected pc to pc with a twisted cable and I was sharing my web connection with the win2k feature "Internet Sharing". For the purpose I have to ethernet card on the one running win2k and one of them ( cards ) have the sharing option enabled. This worked fine. Now I've connected an IMac running on OS 8 instead of the other pc ( that was running win98 ) and manage to use the file sharing option with pc macland via Apple Talk.

But the web sharing does not seem to work cause I cant connect to the web  with the IMac.

Is there any software I could use or any settings I need to change on the IMac so I could share my pc web connection with this IMac? All without the use of a hub/switch/router/etc.

As always, any solution, suggestions, will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

Regards

I think you need to use a router + switch/hub solution. ICS is a typical Micro$oft solution, AFAIK requiring windows on all computers involved.

A generic network solution (router + switch) can be used with all O/S's and gives additional benefits, like firewall capabilities and such.

@rid. Ok Thanks for the reply but I've found the solution here without any hardware. Seem's that I've missed some setup somewhere cause it's the same thing as with any other Win2k to Win2k ICS setup.

That's very good! Didn't know that, I have to admit. Still, the comments about a proper router are valid :)

If you feel the problem has been solved by you yourself, post a Q in the Community Support area, linking to this Q and ask for a refund.

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.
