Sharing Dialup in Maine

On vacation with Pete and family for a week in Acadia (actually staying on Somes Sound). No cell phone coverage (or Verizon 1XRTT CDMA broadband) so the only connection to the outside is a dialup line.

After a small amount of fiddling we've gotten our VAN (Vacation Area Network) running. Using the 12" PowerBook's modem to dialup, and then enabling internet sharing (with Airport-equipped computers) which enables Pete to get online with his Sony VIO's wireless.

There was one hitch, Pete had problems connecting to a number of ports until I turned the firewall on the PB off.
