At my home I have a 56k network with a win 98 machine running a dial up connection and my computer and another computer connecting to it which run winxp. THe network runs through a linksys hub without software. I was wondering if on my computer I am able to forward ports because the network from win 98 computer is automatically firewalled.

I set up the network many years ago so I forgot much about win 98 networking and I can't change the connection to my computer because I frequently move it when the win 98 machine is sationary in place.

Is it possible to open up the ports? Or must i run dial-up on my computer instead? Thanks
