AOL Sharing Tip : When you have done everything as per instructions and still can't share AOL connection, then just open IE browser in the host pc and then try browsing from the client machine. Make sure PPPshar Pro is running in the host pc.
"I had almost given up hope with sharing my dsl internet connection because I have AOL as my ISP. However, after downloading your product today ...., I was able to share my connection. I have two desktops and a laptop. One desktop is directly connected to the modem and the laptop is sharing its connection--I am truly excited. Several people at my work use AOL, and tomorrow I will be telling them all about your product." Chris Abyad, USA
"Fantastic product, I had trouble in the begining trying to share my AOL connection, so I asked for help (to tech. support), less than 12 hours later I got a reply, after following the instructions I was sharing my AOL in under 15 minutes. CONGRATULATIONS on such a great product". Jason, France.
"Just installed PPPshar in order to get my home network sharing the internet connection with newly installed AOL DSL. It works!" Charles Smith, USA
"We have both of our computers successfully running AOL broad band. We are both able to access at the same time with no apparent problems and are able to access e-mail on both computers." Gill Armstrong, UK
I use AOL (broadband) as my ISP. I was sceptical but downloaded the trial version, followed the instructions and in 5 minutes my two PCs were happily talking to the Web simultaneously." David FItzpatrick, UK
These testimonials from PPPshar users says it all. There are no special requirements to use PPPshar to share aol dsl connection. Here is a checklist to help you to get started.
Here's some information on AOL Internet connection sharing that you should know.
You can share any type of Internet connection using PPPshar Pro. So you can share AOL dialup, DSL or satellite (AOL plus) connections.
Whatever be the type of AOL connection, you can comfortably share your internet connection from the client pc using any browser (non-AOL). You can also use any other Internet software from the client pc. No modification is necessary in pppshar settings or in the AOL software.
But if you want to logon through the AOL software from the client PC, then there are limitations if your ISP is AOL.
AOL allows only one connection per session, so your client computers cannot logon to AOL when the main pc is connected to the same aol account. We have feedback from PPPshar users that AOL 8 DSL supports multiple logons and so it is possible to logon through AOL software from the client pc. So try it. We can help you with any information in this regard.
If your ISP is not AOL, then you can very much use any version of AOL software from the client pc by configuring it for SOCKS proxy in PPPshar Pro.
