need good (inexpensive) internet sharing proggie
I am looking for a good internet sharing program to use on my small home office lan system (2 win98 and 1 Nt workstation systems) Only my system has a 56k modem and wife or kids want to surf while I am reading all the great posts!. Thanks for your input!
no doubt about it, Mntsnow, this is the easiest, most featured 'proxy' i found, and it remains free for a 2 PC LAN.
read the doc's carefully, & print out all related links.

I use NAT32. Well I'm testing it right now that is. Seems to be quite good. For a newbie @ networking it wasn't too difficult to set up. All seems to be running fine. Next step (maybe today) I'll swap my modem for the 28.8 USR that's currently in the wifes computer for my V.90 USR and use her system to download while I'm playing. For more info goto nat32.com.
Thanks for your insight guys!
I will check both of this programs out.
I Am using a thing called webramp. It is a 4 port hub that will allow you to connect up to 3 modems. (providing that you have 3 phone lines) And you can use all three modems at once for a 150+k connection. Very easy to setup and run can even conect to an exsisting hub or network. I have some for About $200.
I have been using the "Argus CelerAccess-300 Internet Access Server" that I bought for $150 last year. It allows me to connect my PCs and MACs to a single ISP. One end connects directly to a modem; the other to a 10BaseT network. The IAS dials my ISP when any of the computers in my home LAN try to access the internet. It also a DHCP server, making connecting another PC or MAC a simple matter.
Although it works great for sharing the internet, I cannot access my company's NT machines with the IAS. (I guess NetBIOS packets are filtered.) So, using the IAS for telecommuting is not an option.
Justin: How are you trying to access your company? NETBIOS is an unroutable protocol and the server at your company won't pass them along. You probably can use another protocol and get right in. TCP/IP come to mind. Also you must have RAS (Remote Access Services) installed and have an account on the server at work to access the NT Domain.
Just my $0.02.
