AOL and networking

  allanbeard 20:35 06 Oct 2003

I would like to know how to network two XP machines together, using AOL. I have read the previous threads- one response says it is possible- but none say how it can be done. AOL's tech desk don't want to assist, but intimate that it is possible.

click here and use a Proxy server. This works fine with AOL. j.

Also go into the AOL help forums, you will receive all the help you need. j.

Thanks for the replies, which I think are all US based. I gather for some unknown reason that AOL UK does not support networking. Are respondents confident that the suggested solutions work in the UK?

It's true that AOL do not support networking. That means they will not help with setup questions and any problems you may have in configuration of the network. Apart from that there is no valid reason for it not to work.

I myself do not have a network although I'm with AOL. Several members of this forum have AOL networked, [To the best of my knowledge] and if they see your thread will confirm this for you. j.
