Upgrade to WFWG (3.11) and it will be easier. I haven't done this but
with WFWG I should think its as easy as getting a win95 box on the
net. After all its just an extended part of the network. Try  tcp/ip
protocol.

My concern would be getting a firewall in win3 though a router would
be a much better solution.
