I need your help regarding a problam in Arcgis.
I want to draw straight lines between ALL the points (shapfile).
I know that there is an option to draw lines from one point to all the other points (spider tool), but I have 2 problams:
1. I don't have business analysis.
2. I want to draw lines between ALL the point, so I will get a net of lines connecting all the points.

What can I do?

Thank you for the help,

Are you familiar with the python in ArcGIS?

See this help article that you can modify for your needs:
Create a line based on origin and destination points with python.
That article is for ArcGIS 9x so the syntax is different in V10 and will need to be updated.

That may be the ArcGIS solution.
