Make a note of what your IP address is right now. I'll assume that it's
105.205.101.27 for the example.

Drop to DOS.
type MAKEHOST and press <ENTER>
You see:
MAKEHOST - Makes a HOSTS file for Dynamic IP. By Fred Salerno

Enter the first three segments of the IP address. (ex:199.199.199)
(you enter 105.205.101)

Enter the starting address (ex:1)
(you enter 1)

Enter the ending address (ex:255)
(you enter 255)

Done! HOSTS file created!

The hosts file will be in the directory you were in when you ran MAKEHOST
and it will have 255 lines in it, and look like this:

105.205.101.1 dialup
105.205.101.2 dialup
105.205.101.3 dialup
105.205.101.4 dialup
105.205.101.5 dialup
.
<snip>
.
105.205.101.251 dialup
105.205.101.252 dialup
105.205.101.253 dialup
105.205.101.254 dialup
105.205.101.255 dialup

Put this hosts file in the same directory as your winsock.dll file.
