No, I'm not trying to use ICS. I just want a computer to work as a proxy server. The machine has NE2000 nic, local network works just fine. But, as soon as I connect, with my GPRS cellphone (as a standard modem in serial port), to Internet, LAN stops working. The machine finds itself with ping but no other computers. There are no firewalls installed, it's just plain 98, not even SE. LAN continues working the moment I disconnect the dialup connection. I'd like to get that LAN working while the machine would still be online. And, LAN must use TCP/IP. Can't Win9x just bind TCP/IP to multiple connections at once?
