Many cable modem service providers explicitly disallow connection sharing, but DSL contracts might not do so. They provide service to me and I provide service to my neighbors. If they don't want to provide me with the service, they don't have to offer it. We're not reselling, just pooling our use. Remember, the Internet is whatever you define it as... just a bunch of computers. So as far as we're concerned, we're connecting THEM (our ISP) to OUR net resources... hmmm, maybe we should be charging them for it! ;-) Raines Raines Cohen <coho-L [at] raines.com> <http://www.swansway.com/> Where we just added a new picture to our website.
