looking for help with xp internet sharing proxy and ports

Hi, I've been looking for a solution for running online games through my in home network. I have the network running but I can't even get on the net straight through my router on my #2 machine. the only way I can connect is through a proxy server. I know that these games can't connect because the ports are not open so I either need to find a way to map ports thru analogx proxy server or learn how to do internet connection sharing with xp. We have one (server) computer#1 that is connected to the net thru dial-up modem this machine has a wireless lan, this is also the machine I run my proxy server on I can ping machine 2 and see it. next we have machine#2 it is a client it is conected to the wireless router I can ping machine 1 and see it, but I can ping www.sears.com. can anyone help?

RE: looking for help with xp internet sharing proxy and ports


You'll have to re-explain that.  Are you basically saying that your primary internet connection is dialup and you want to have multiple machines doing online gaming?
