    Hi,
       
      I am new to this GPRS connection, usually when i
    need internet access i just use dial up connection.
       
      Then i found cheap internet connection using GPRS,
    its like using hand phone (cellular phone), and i bet
    this cellular phone has a modem in it.
       
      When i typed "ipconfig /all" on my server (i have
    home LAN, and server is using xp sp 2), then something
    show like :
      ================================
      PPP adapter lll:
       
              Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
              Description . . . . . . . . . . . : WAN
    (PPP/SLIP) Interface
              Physical Address. . . . . . . . . :
    00-c-c-c-c-c
              Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
              IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
    10.11.246.114
              Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
    255.255.255.255
              Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
    10.11.246.114
              DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : x-x-x-x
                                                  x-x-x-x
              NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Disabled
      ====================================
       
      then i click my connection status windows, and i can
    see something
    like :
       
      server IP Address : 10.11.246.115
      client IP address : 10.11.246.114
       
      ==================================
       
      My first question is :
      Who's 10.11.246.114 and who's 10.11.246.115 ? i keep
    thinking that
    10.11.246.114 is my server (my box with windows xp sp
    2) and
    10.11.246.115 is my handphone, is it right ?
       
      and everytime i do the tracert or traceroute, i got
    192.168.66.2 in
    my first hop (i got 192.168.66.2 in second hop if i do
    traceroute in
    client), it's seem 192.168.66.2 is a router, isnt it ?
       
      If you have good article/tutorial for dummies about
    GPRS connection, i'll be glad if i get informed
       
      thanks
