Hi all, I need a little help from you Mac experts ......

I am a PC user and unfamiliar with the fine workings of Apple computers, but I have a good friend who uses a Mac with OS9 and we would like to be able to share an Internet connection.

So the situation is this....... The Mac has the connection to the internet via an ISDN modem, both machines have network cards and cables, I do not need file sharing, or share of the printers, only access to the internet from the PC via the Mac.

I know how to do this between 2 PC's but I have no experience configuring a Mac.

Please can anyone give me some pointers how to connect my PC to a Mac so as to share the Internet connection or help piont me in the right direction.

Thanks in Advance

Coddie

coddie you may be surprised but if you can do it with to PC's its pretty much the exact same with a pc and a mac. all you need is a router that you can connect them both to

Hmm, well to start there is no need to post the same thing in multiple sub-forums. Please keep what you need to say in this thread.

But I think coddie means sharing the connection from PC to Mac.. right?

sorry about cross posting,
