I have a broadband connection which has 5 static ip's connected through a hub. (LAN)
I have assigned the static ips to the nearest computers enabling 5 connections.
How would i go about sharing connections with other computers running windows 2K to allow me to connect more to the net?

I would install a firewall with two network ports. Configure it to NAT outgoing traffic. You can now connect as many systems as you want too. You just need to configure them to point to the IP address of the firewall as their gateway.

You could use linux as the firewall or purchase a firewall appliance. There are several to choose from.


Cheers,
