Guys I have a small networking with 4 systems...

I have the server as Windows 2000 server.

I am using a Dail-Up connection....

I have shared the Connection to the other system using network..

Now the problem is....I can acces the internet through all the systems......but it teakes a long time open a mail.....like YAhoo, Rediff, Hotmail...

I can access all the othersites very fine with good speed......I can accesss the mails in my server but not in the other systems....

Messengers are connecting in all clents......but mails not working......

Does any one suggest me.......how's this happend.......

Mien is a TATA Dail Up connection.......OS Windows 2000 server in Server.....Win 98SE in other systems.............Internet Explorer 6.0 Sp1

Is there any problem with my OS in the server

I have shared the internet connection (not using any proxy server)

I have heard about problems long ago with problems accessing certain webmail sites that were eventually resolved by adjusting MTU settings on the connection - can you adjust your MTU setting on your dialup session to be lower than it already is?  Also, since MS products seem to handle MTU mismatches less than gracefully, you might want to try adjusting your ethernet MTUs as well...

Cheers,

mostly is the problem the SSL Connection to the website ....
the certificate cannot be validated by the client machine behind an IT-Gateway using NAT (Network adress translation)

(internet-connectionsharing using this type of translation)

I have found that sharing dialup service to many clients isn't the best solution.  Mail tends to be a bit more taxing.  If you could increase your bandwidth either using DSL or Broadband you would find that everything speeds up and is more reliable.  You could then incorporate security with a cable modem/router.
