Hi, had a question. I have Windows XP, cable internet access, and a modem. The question is this. I know it is possible, but not sure how :(

Can I set up my PC as a server which could accept a dial in connection and when the user connects to my PC, he can access the internet from my pc?

I know how to up my PC for accepting Dial in connections(Using dial in server), but after that what would I do? Would I need to use a proxy server similar to Wingate or is there any other way.

Thanks in Advance :)
