    Modem Sharing

    How do you add a shared modem in Windows 98? I want to add a server modem to a workstation as if it were local. In Win 95, there was a modem sharing option and you could specify the path the the modem. Can't figure it out in Win 98. Thanks.

    Check out at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.download.com>http://www.download.com. The first can be used to accomplish what you're looking for, and I don't believe they charge you if you're only using one machine hooked up to a 'server'.

    Hope this helps!

    Re: Modem Sharing

    We are using MS Small Business Server as our NOS and I believe that already has a proxy server and I know I installed some proxy client software to enable my co-worker to get email, etc. I'm still new at this but do I need to download winproxy if we are using Small Business Server. Seems like there should be a way to just add the modem to the workstation. Thanks.

    Re: Modem Sharing

    I feel like your problem may be a great candidate for <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/technet/newsgroups/default.asp>TechNet discussion Groups</A> There is tons of knowledge there for server oriented questions, and i'm sure you can get pretty quick resolution on this problem in particular.

    I would think that if you can't 'share' a modem much like you would share a printer, then you would have to install winproxy to make the connection work, but again, ask the networking gurus at technet for further clarification, if necessary. (there's so much knowledge there, it's absurd.)

    Hope this helps!
