I'm trying to access the Internet on a machine with Win 2000 Server on it
FROM a machine with XP, connected with a cross-over cable.
I had this working about 3 years ago but forgot what I did to make it work.
I can view folders on the Win 2000 machine from XP machine.
Any ideas?  thanks

    thanks . .
    I checked off the option below and it worked. But is there a
    security risk with this option?

    Local area connection (cable modem) properties:

    "Allow other network users to connect through this
    computers Internet connection."   << checked
