ADSL Internet Connection via DCC: Host


for additional information:
See Parallel Technologies' Web Site for detailed information on
Internet Connection Sharing via Direct Cable Connection (DCC) :
There are some very helpful Step-By-Step Setup Instructions for setting up
DirectParallel® Direct Cable Connection (DCC) on Windows 95/98/2000/ME:

When sharing a connection to the Internet via modem, you need to configure to use
Dialup-Networking (DUN) and Direct-Cable-Connection (DCC) at the same time.
This is NOT required when sharing an ADSL connection to the Internet , since the
Dial-Up adapter is NOT used anymore to connect to the Internet :

Your Network configuration should contain:

- Dial-Up Adapter : for the DCC connection

- the network cards required for ADSL
(in this example: 3C509 and the PPPoE )

- TCP/IP protocol with binding to all adapters

- NetBEUI protocol with binding to the Dial-Up
adapter (for the DCC connection)

A check: Make the connection from the DCC client to this DCC-Host:

then run on the DCC host the command
(via the Start-menu / Run ) : "winipcfg" :

By default, the DCC-host will be assigned the IP-address
You need this info when
configuring in the next step the DCC client.
