I have a computer(A) connected to the Internet through a LAN. Can I possibly connect a remote computer(B) through a telephone line to share the Internet service of this computer(A)? Computer B is running Win2000 and Computer A is running Win2000 server. Thanks.
Sure. The Phoneline Networking Association (PNA) has released specifications for connecting PCs via Cat3 phone lines. Most network adapter vendors have a PNA product. You'll get 11Mbps performance and simple setup for Windows 2000 and XP. Configure the Windows 2000 server to share the interface connected to the Internet. This Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service creates a little DHCP service on the server so the PNA client can obtain an IP address and gateway information.
