What is the best way of sharing an internet connection between two computers especially when one computer needs to monitor and control the bandwidth the other PC has access too?
Some sort of proxy server I am assuming?
I am using DSL and another guy who lives downstairs is interested in sharing my connection. I have already hooked up another lan card and have even made a cross over wire. What next? I am not particularly interested in Windows ICS as I would have very little control of the bandwidth.
P.S. I am on vista (which will be the server of sorts) and he (the client) is using xp.
Any advice or software suggestion will be appreciated!
