    OK. Network is done. I can see her comp in network neighbourhood, and she can access internet and msnm over the lan. Only problem is, Outlook Express 6 is unable to get messages. Click on send/recv and it pops up the connect to... box.

    What can I do to make it work.

    No error. It pops up the "Connect To..." dialup connection box. It wants a direct modem connection to work. But the rest is ok with the lan connection.

    Try setting the Connection Properties through the Account properties, and check 'always use this connection' and then make sure Local Area Network' is selected. OE shares Internet Explorers settings, so make sure that is also configured properly.

    Yeah I know it shares with IE, but IE and MSNM work.
