I recently aquired a low end PC and want to use it as a proxy(NAT) for my home internet connection (56k sigh...). I have Windows NT4 workstation on it, with Service Pack 6a installed. I am using Winroute for my NAT server and have run into a problem. I want the connection to dial on demand since my parents won't figure out how to manually connect. In the RAS properties I set up everything right so I can get on the net, then I set it to dial on demand. Whenever I request something on the internet nothing happens, it doesn't dial. I can go into the administration program and manually connect, and it works (using it now).
Does anyone know how to set it up so it dials on NAT?
I had almost this exact setup before I went cable, and had no problem with it. Make sure that the trial hasn't expired, and that it is running as a service. Also, I found that Winroute works better if you let it DHCP IP information out to the clients. If all else fails I guess you could just move it to a Win98 machine.
