Accessing the internet through another system

I have a group of Solaris machines being logged in locally but accessing the internet through a dhcp connection. I am short 2 network drops and ports and need to get these machines accesssing the internet. I cannot add a hub or switch because of administrative reasons. Is there a way to connect one of the non-connect systems to a connected one and access the internet through that system?

dont get this question, but it seens trivial

Can you reformulate that question please Myersp, II dont think its clear what you are getting at. I suspect you need/mean telnet.

What I am trying to say is... Could I put two network cards in a Solaris machine one card connected to the network and the other card going to another machine. Then can the other machine access the internet through the machine with two network cards?

is that clear?
I know this can be done easily in windows.

Yes, you can certainly do that. Read this, especially section 3.5.
