I am running a software package called JanaProx. It
sets up a proxy server and email server on Windows
machines. It is clean and works really well (although
it doesn't like screen savers)
The machine that is running the proxy server
application is on IP

Firewall? I don't have a firewall. I have three
computers on a small home network. (4 once I get the
Newt on it)
All the other machines on the network use the
IP as a proxy to dial into the internet. The email
software (outlook express) also uses this IP for the
mail server. I don't have a DNS or anything like that
on the network.

the network? or Pinging from the newt?
I can ping anything I want once the proxy server dials
into the internet. I can also ping anything on the
network whenever I want. I don't have a PING program
for the Newt, so I don't know that part of the

Well, since I don't have a firewall, no...but I never
tried to PING the newt from any of the other machines.

btw, I took the Newt to work, set it up to dynamic IP
and can cruze the internet with no problems!
