Networking Single Connection
Posted on 2005-03-16
I am trying to create a network and could do with your help. I have the following requirements:
- 4MB DSL Connection (currently USB Modem)
(1) XP Professional Tower - Hosting DB Server (USB Modem, 3 LAN Card)
(2) XP Professional Tower
(3) XP Home Tower
(4) XP Professional Laptop
At the moment the current config is the following: DSL Connection to (1) and Cross over cable to (2). (3) & (4) are not connected.
For additional complexity.... I require Remote Desktop Connection or VNC connection to them all. At the moment I am connecting to (1) via Remote Desktop Connection and VNC'ing accross to (2).
As (1) has several LAN cards - I tried having two computers connected to (1) sharing the internet connection, but no matter what config I tried. It did not work.
I am happy to purchase more hardware (if required). In short I just need a stable network solution.
Would a solution be having (1) connected via USB and also to HUB for all the other machines?
