Modem Internet Connection via DCC: Client


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:

For "
Modem Internet Connection Sharing via Direct-Cable Connection", you need first to
configure the DCC host for Internet Connection Sharing,
for "
ADSL Internet Connection Sharing via Direect-Cable Connection", you need first to
configure the DCC host for Internet Connection Sharing,
then you need to adjust the configuration on the DCC client:

In the Properties/configuration of Network,
where you should have for basic DCC
connectivity the components:
- Client for Microsoft Networks
- Dial-Up Adapter
- NetBEUI protocol
TCP/IP protocol
- File and Printer sharing

Display the "Properties" of TCP/IP:
tab: IP-address

no need to assign an IP-address, it will
use by default:
tab: DNS Configuration

- enable DNS
- enter your computer name as Host
- enter the IP-address of the DCC-host as
DNS Server.

This is required, so that the DCC-client
knows to pass any
www.wown.com) on to the DCC
host, which will itself pass it on to the
DNS-server defined by your Internet
Verify this configuration:
Make the DCC connection to the DCC host,
use "winipcfg" (via the Start-menu / Run)
(or "ipconfig" on NT4 and Windows2000):

- make sure that the IP-address of the
DCC host is defined as

Note: although the Gateway address
is displayed to be the same as the
IP-address of the DCC-client, it is
working properly.
However, if you experience problems,
then I suggest to defined MANUALLY
for the DCC client:
- IP-address:
- subnet mask:
- Gateway:

You are now ready to install the non-Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing via Modem or
non-Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing via ADSL .
