Install this application and allow multiple PCs to share a single internet connection of any type (dial-up TCP/IP, ISDN, ADSL, cable modem etc.) simultaneously.
PPPShar is installed onto the gateway PC (the PC with the internet connection) with everything preconfigured for ease of use.
However, the PCs that are to share the connection do require some tweaking - namely, altering the proxy settings. This is easy to do though, and full instructions are provided.
PPPShar Pro provides shared access to all internet content, including email, FTP, Telnet, ICQ, Real Audio/Video and much more. A more basic version is available (see website, above) that simply allows internet access.
This program can provide access for unlimited PCs, although internet speed will obviously decrease as users increase.
Purchase Price: $25 (1 user), $49 (5 users) & up.
