    2 computers connected through 1

    Hi

    Do you know if it is possible to connect 2 machines via another one?

    i.e. the main computer will be connected to the Internet through the integrated NIC of the mobo and 2 other NICs installed will serve the two other machines...

    Will AnalogX allow me to do that?

    Thanks.

    AnalogX proxy will do that, but ICS will as well. Just run the wizard on both PCs answering the questions and it will all be setup.

    Use a crossover cable though

    or some network cards are auto sensing and can use normal cables as cross-over cables, but it's worth checking.

    alternatively small network hubs / switches are very cheap. (i paid £30 for an 8port 10/100 edimax switch)
