Modem 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:

You need to configure to use
Dialup-Networking (DUN) and Direct-Cable-Connection (DCC)
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 configuration, select
the button "Add" , select "Adapter",
again "Add" and then select as
"Manufacturer" " Microsoft" and as
"Network Adapter" the
"Dial-Up Adapter"

In Control-Panel , use
"Add/Remove Programs",
tab: "Windows Setup" and install
"Virtual Private Networking"
(defined as a communications item)

Since we only need to get the
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 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.
