    i know its possible to directly connect two computers via parallel port...but is it possible to share an internet connection connected like that? i've never had the want or need to link up via parallel, so i have no clue... and i've asked a couple people and no one knew for sure

    To tell you the truth, I think it'll be painfully slow for anything but dial-up Internet sharing, but it should work.
