    now i have installed wow on both machines but the wow on laptop refuses to connect. i can see the lan working fine with the filesharing even web browsing works via a proxy server "AnalogX Proxy".

    but wow refuses to connect..on the net it seems the only option is to use a Socks Tunnel / HTTP tunnel to redirect all wow data to my modem but i am in a fix how.

    i have downloaded HTTPTunnel server+client but i cannot figure out how to configure the httptunnel server to bind to the lan ip?

    can any one please help me with this?? or does anyone have any other ideas than socks tunnel?
