    I have a small network with PCs (XP, W98-2, Millenium) and Mac (OS9).
    I have a new ADSL Internet connection (dynamic IP)
    The XP machine is the internet administrator.
    First thing I´ve done:
    I checked the boxes to share Internet with the other computers (they have static IP: 192.168...) and to enable the personal firewall.
    All is working fine but the clients could not download email from a certain server (using Eudora, Outlook, Incredimail) as the XP server does.
    The Pop server shows the number of messages and they begin to download but only a bite.
    The same thing is happening browsing a few websites, it is impossible to access to them. (weather.com)
    I don´t know if it is a coincidence but those site "refuse" the ping command.

    I was making some tests. I changed the internet server for a computer with W98-2 and all those problems have gone.

    I need the machine with XP to be the internet server.

    I was making another tests:
    I disabled XP internet sharing and security and I´ve tried with Winproxy, Winroute and Wingate (third-party software), ZoneAlarm (as a firewall)(enabling and disabling it) but always the same problem with those servers.
    Any ideas are welcome. Thanks

    You ave to edit / select the ports that are open in the properties of the internet connection on the ADSL server.

    there are a list of ports already created just tick the ones u need and u can also create some more.

    remember the compter with which u are shereing the ADSL is essentialy a PROXY server so will have some limits to incomeing transfers.

    Hope this helps.

    You are confusing this with another problem.
    What? No, it's not. Besides if he's hitting the capacity limit of the server it would just go slower.

    What did you set the MTU to? Have you tried several values?

    MTU=Maximum transmition unit.
    I cannot found this item matching these words.
