    Internet Connectivity

    This is a fishing expedition!

    I consult to a small law firm who uses SyGate on a Win98 computer for internet connectivity.

    The computer died (HDD), so I had to rebuild it. All the SyGate info & install files were on the dead HDD, so we had to use the new version. BIG TROUBLE!

    The new version has ALL SORTS of dial & hang-up bugs. SyGate admits to these & says they're working on fixes (for 2 weeks now).

    We need an alternative connection sharing / firewall program for use with a dial-up connection.

    What direction can the ever-helpful Loungers give me?

    As a temporary measure, you can use Windows built-in Internet Connection Sharing and ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.zonelabs.com/>http://www.zonelabs.com/</A> or other low-cost firewall...
