Modem Internet Connection via DCC: Host
You need to configure to use Dialup-Networking (DUN) and Direct-Cable-Connection
at the same time, which requires the upgrade of Windows95 to DUN
1.2 or DUN 1.3 :
Dial-up networking and Direct cable use internally the same
component: the Dialup-Adapter.
To be able to use DUN
and DCC at the same time, you need to
install a second Dialup-Adapter:
( which we get by "mis-using"
the dialup-adapter added by Microsoft for use with Virtual Private Networks: VPN ) :
|In the Network
the button "Add" ,
again "Add" and then
"Manufacturer" " Microsoft"
"Network Adapter" the
|In Control-Panel , use
tab: "Windows Setup"
"Virtual Private Networking"
(defined as a communications item)
||Since we only need to get
second Dial-Up Adapter (listed as :
"Dial-Up Adapter #2 (VPN support) ",
we do not need the other VPN components:
- Microsoft Virtual Private Networking Adapter
- NDISWAN - protocol
You can delete (="Remove")
these 2 components.
A check: Make the connection from the DCC client to this
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.
