    Please Help !!

    Does anyone know how to use Internet Connection Sharing with AOL 7.

    I've used BT and Freeserve successfully, but have just changed over to AOL and cannot get the ICS sussed.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thanks, Abbs.

    I don't think it is possible to make AOL Dial on Demand, but it may work if you log in on the gateway machine, and them go back to the other one and use the net. I'm pretty sure AOL can't dial 0on demand.

    Thanks. I have found that it is definately NOT possible to dial-on demand with AOL. I can get round the VPN but not the ICS.

    Apparently is was possible to use ICS with AOL v.6, but as I'm running XP Pro it's not compatible.

    Back to drawing board, the aim was to find a reliable ISP with no cut-offs !! So if anyone knows of any reliable services, please let me know :eek:)

    Thanks, Abbs.
