[COLOR=blue]If a server can connect multiple users to the internet via one dial-up-connection.Is it possible to configure a machine as a server using one of microsofts products,have it open a connection to the internet,then make miltiple connections thru the same connection and have the available connections placed on a VPN or LAN for access at the same time by any user.Does it use multiple frequencies to send/recieve the different requests or is some other technology used.

Yes... it's called Internet Connection Sharing - ICS.

If the machine connected directly to the net is running XP you can support Connection Sharing on different subnets - i.e. if you have ethernet and wireless networks computers on both parts can share.

But otherwise, you are restriced to one subnet.

However, I don't recommend ICS. Because:
1. It can be a bit hard to set up
2. The main internet machine must be on all the time
3. Sharing only makes sense of you have a reasonably fast, always on connection
4. In which case you should have a hardware firewall
5. And hardware routrers with integrated firewalls are now cheap.

yeah you right pcy ... I suggest to you ( 237264726 ) to use Barricade™ Cable/DSL Broadband Router with SPI Firewall (SMC7004VBR) if you use ADSL connection. Because this device is more secure
