You want to turn the XP box into a router? =20
If it is in an Internet Caf=E9, one would assume that there is network
connectivity already.  Where would the client system be connecting =
from?

Bear with me Chris. Aren't you just describing a way to remotely access =
the
server? I am not interested in accessing the server. I just want the =
server
to share its internet connection remotely.  Chris Ruggeri

I have this question posted in my group that I can't satisfactorily =
address.
Maybe the gurus in this group could add some suggestions. Someone asked =
me
if it's possible to connect to one of his computer in his internet cafe =
not
to access the computer remotely and not for the speed but to take =
advantage
of it's internet connection (unlimited DSL). So effectively the remote
computer would become an ISP of sorts albeit with just one client. I =
told
him it is possible coz someone told me a while back that XP has a =
built-in
way to do this. I told him to setup an account with the remote server =
for
the client computer. But as to how to set up the remote server, I don't
exactly know how to go about it. Anyone has any ideas? Was I wrong to
suggest that this is possible?
