In my house have a Windows XP (home edition) PC (192.168.0.10) which speaks to my router (192.168.0.1) for internet access via ADSL.
I want to connect a incoming calls modem to the house based XP machine so that when I am out with a laptop I can dial up the house and gain normal internet access just like when I dial an ISP.
The big advantage is that rather than pay 5p per minute for an 0845 ISP number, I can dial my normal landline for 0p per minute!
The connectivity is notionally as follows:
LAPTOP-MODEM------MODEM-XP_HOME(192.168.0.10)----Lan----(192.168.0.1)ROUTER(Real IP Address)---------Internet
So....... can this be done on XP Home Edition - any pointers? Thanks
