Done as described.... however, there are a couple of things in the bottom part of what you sent that I'm not sure I understand. What do you think this means: IMPORTANT: You should not use this feature on a computer running >DNS server or >DHCP server or a Windows domain controller. and >You cannot modify the default network configuration after enabling >ICS. This >includes items such as the range of private IP addresses that are >handed out >(DHCP allocator), enabling or disabling DNS, configuring a range >of public IP >addresses, or configuring inbound mappings. > > >Hi Pam, >If this is enabled, try disabling it and enabling it again. > >Bob Noble >www.sonic.net/bnoble > >How to Enable Internet Connection Sharing on a Network Connection >in Windows >2000 >The information in this article applies to: > a..

Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional >This article was previously published under Q237254 >For a Microsoft Windows XP version of this article, see 314066. > >SUMMARY >With the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) feature of network and dial-up >connections, you can use Windows to connect your home network or >small office >network to the Internet. For example, you may have a home network >that connects >to the Internet by using a dial-up connection. By enabling ICS on >the computer >that uses the dial-up connection, you are providing network >address translation, >addressing, and name resolution services for all computers on your >home network. >MORE INFORMATION >To enable ICS on a network connection: > 1.. In Control Panel, double-click Network and Dial-Up Connections. > 2.. Right-click the connection you want to share, and then click >Properties. > 3.. Click the Sharing tab, and then click to select the Enable Internet >Connection Sharing for this connection check box. > 4.. If the connection you are sharing is a Dial-up connection >and you want the >connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home network >attempts to use external resources, click to select the Enable >on-demand dialing >check box. >NOTE: To enable ICS in Windows, you must have administrative rights. > >IMPORTANT: You should not use this feature on a computer running >DNS server or >DHCP server or a Windows domain controller. When you enable ICS, >the network >adapter connected to the home or small office network is given a >new static IP >address configuration. Existing TCP/IP connections on the CS >computer are lost >and need to be re-established. >Configuration and Usage Issues >The ICS feature is intended for use in a small office or home >office in which >the network configuration and the Internet connection are managed by the >Windows-based computer on which the shared connection resides. It >is assumed >that on its network, this computer is the only Internet >connection, is the only >gateway to the Internet, and that it sets up all internal network >addresses. > >You cannot modify the default network configuration after enabling >ICS. This >includes items such as the range of private IP addresses that are >handed out >(DHCP allocator), enabling or disabling DNS, configuring a range >of public IP >addresses, or configuring inbound mappings. > >If your home office users need to gain access to a corporate >network that is >connected to the Internet by a tunnel server from a ICS network, >they need to >create a virtual private network (VPN) connection to tunnel from >the computer on >the ICS network to the corporate tunnel server on the Internet. The VPN >connection is authenticated and secure, and creating the tunneled >connection >allocates proper IP addresses, DNS server addresses, and WINS >server addresses >for the corporate network. > > >To unsubscribe from this list send an email to >pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field >OR by logging into the Web interface. > To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
