I'm not totally sure about the first part, but I know you are not running a dns
server. I don't think you are running your server as any of the others either.


I think the second part, means not to change anything, after you set it up with
one of the wizards.

| >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
