Q

Is it possible to bridge two different LANs via a PC?

Is it possible to bridge two different LANs via a PC? The PC is installed with two LAN cards and Windows 2000 Professional.
Windows 2000 Professional doesn't include a bridge feature, as does Windows XP Professional. What are you trying to accomplish? If all you're trying to do is share an Internet connection, the solution might be simpler. Investigate Internet Connection Sharing or third-party products like those at http://www.wingate.com and http://www.winproxy.com.
