I just established a LAN between my PC with XP and my
machine with 98. I also set up all the sharing corectly.
I am able to share files, my printer, and also my
internet connection. I am using TCP/IP as my protocol.
Why is it than when ever I have both of my machines on
and the network is enabled, that my host computer (win
XP, the one with the dial-up connection and modem)
automatically trys to dial-up, and won't stop until it
establishes a connection? (even if I click cancel) the
modem re-engages. Can I have my network enabled without
being logged on to the internet.(to share files,
printers, ect?) I do want to be able to share my internet
connection though. If I have my XP machine on and then
boot up my 98 machine, my XP machine automatically starts
dialing up. How can I stop this? or can I?
Any info would be appriciated,
