    How come I can connect to the internet using DSL when I load Win2k Svr, but when I set up AD.. I CAN'T connect to the web, so I can SHARE the connection.

    I want to allways have my svr CONNECTED to the web, and LOG INTO the svr to connect to the web from wkstn rig, like at work...

    What gives???



    One thing that I WANT to do is to have a game running from the svr so I can CONTROL the game/maps, and from my 2nd rig, be able to get on the net and then PLAY the game...

    It's a little difficult to figure out what you're asking (for me, at least)...

    But, I think what you'll need is a program like www.nat32.com
    Depending on how your DSL connects, Windows can't share it by itself like it can Network connections.

    A better bet than using your svr for sharing is to buy a DSL router/switch. Then you can run as many as needed on your DSL and have great performance besides... I like the LinkSys models as they are basicly brainless installs and really do the job for cheap!
