I have a situation whci I cannot figure out and I'm hoping that
someone here might know the answer, or at least have some clues as to
where to look.
A friend has setup a network in his home consisting of two (2)
machines. The first is a WinXP box that is connected by dialup to
the outside world and is set to share the connection (ICS). The
other is a Win 98 2nd Ed box. The TCP/IP setup is as per
ie: static ips on both boxes, etc ...
The problem is that whenever the win98 box is attached to the network,
the XP box dials out for what seems to be no reason. If the Win 98
box is disconnected form the network, this DOESN'T occur. We have
checked both boxes for programs that might be casuing the activity,
viruses, etc.... Have also doublke checked the setup including the
hosts file t make sure there are no spelling mistakes.....
