Hi,

I got 2 networked machines at home. I can share resources back and forth among them, so this is working pretty well.

Now I wanted to give Internet access to my win 98 machine, but I can't seem to make this work.
Machine XP is 192.168.0.1 and the W98 is 192.168.0.2.
I've set the gateway to 192.168.0.1 on the W98

BTW, I'm using dial-up connection (still !) on my XP

thanks for the posting,
but I prefer to see some answers here instead of keep on reading articles, believe me I've read some.
besides I can't give the points to the article's writer... unless it's you, of course :)

Go to network connections, select the one with the modem and enable Allow other network users to connect. If you want you can enable dial-up on demand, If the firewall is active on the internal nic of the xp machine, disable it.

well, thanks for the tip on the firewall, although it's not exactly what was happening, but it led me to a solution.

I have ZoneAlarm running and when I turned it off then the w98 started browsing (I feel dumb that I didn't tried that before), that works, but I don't feel secure using only XP's firewall.

Now I need to know how to get it to work with zonealarm, but I guess that'll be another question.
