A Canadian company has announced a product that allows up to three PCs to access the Internet simultaneously using one telephone line, one modem and one IP (Internet Protocol) address.

Protec Microsystems' WebShare sells for a suggested retail price of US$359 and includes six DB25-to-RJ45 adapters and three 4m cables. It works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Eudora and other WinSock-compliant programs.

Although the PCs share the same IP address, communications parameters and log-in script if one is defined, each can send and receive personal email. The machines connect to the WebShare unit through three separate ports via serial cables. A fourth port on the unit is used to connect an external modem.
