Good question! I guess one of your workstations would have to be a
SLIP/PPP server (i.e. - emulate an ISP) and allow the other workstation
to dial in as an internet SLIP/PPP client. I haven't tried using Trumpet
WinSock to "auto-answer" (acting as a server) from one end; to establish a
connection from another Trumpet WinSock machine. I don't think this
theory will work. This question is better left to Mr Peter Tattum at
Trumpet Software International to answer. How about if you try setting
up this session with these sample parameters:

DOMAIN NAME: test.line.ppp test.line.ppp

You won't need to resolve DNS services outside of your own machines.
Your IP numbers should reflect that your both on the same Class "D"
line. Flip-flop your IP numbers in the Gateway field to fool Trumpet
into resolving the other machine as the Internet router. Your domain
name can be whatever you want, as long as they're the same!!!

TO: Mr. Tattam,
Could you help us with this??? Would this work??? Do you have an

Good luck,
