Getting TCP/IP info from XP Dial-up

Win XP home
Win 95b

My daughter?s Win XP is on a dial-up ISP. I have an old Toshiba 95b laptop that works well and I would like to use DUN to configure it for the same ISP.

Where do I find, on the XP, TCP/IP settings and such required to do this?

DUN connection with XP serving as the host, you will need to set up a working network between 95b and XP and configure XP to use ICS to share the connection.

This will be a feat for a novice to networking and is best done with an ethernet connection through a switch.

Here's a place to get started.

Personally, I would upgrade to broadband, buy a router and a newer OS for that laptop if the hardware permits.
