Hi Sandi, For some reason I thought you were using a 2k server too. Oh well. This all makes sense now. One would put their server IP number in there, as that would be were other computers on the network would go for the network IP addresses which the server likely sets up automatically, once you put the IP number in the dns area. Unless, of course, one has a dedicated machine for the dns stuff. Anyway persistence does pay off. :O) Now, if I could get my machine to shut down properly. I have to try some of the things people have sent on the subject later tonight. I tried the setting in the bios thing you mentioned. But I when in after and reset some other things before I tested it, and it didn't help, but I need to do it again without resetting some things to see for sure. Thanks to everyone for all the tips. :O) Bob Noble www.sonic.net/bnoble ----- Original Message ----- From: "Sandi Neumann" <sanneumann@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: <pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Saturday, February 08, 2003 2:14 PM Subject: [pcductape] Re: pam's network is part fixed !!! =) Heads up Dee | Great job to you both! Sometimes it's the simplest things that hang us up. Win98 should be easy compared to this. :-) | | | Cheers! | Sandi | http://pcductape.topcities.com/ | SciFi Artwork | news://news.annexcafe.com/annexcafe.phoenix.assemblers | PCD-Offtopic group-(clean!) | pcd-offtopic-subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx | | ----- Original Message ----- | From: Pam | To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx | Sent: Saturday, February 08, 2003 1:27 PM | Subject: [pcductape] pam's network is part fixed !!! =) Heads up Dee | | | YeeeeHaaaaa !!! (That's the Texan coming out in me) | The XP box now has access to ICS !!! | Yiippppeeeee !! (That's the kid coming out in me) | | And the solution was simple. Here's how I did it: | | Set the DNS server IP as 192.168.0.1 if not already set on the machine | acting as server. | | Switch off internet sharing, located in the dial up properties. | Change the IP of the LAN card to 10.0.0.1 | reboot | switch on Internet sharing again. | ... If that works, you should get a complaint from the Internet Sharing that | the local lan card has to be 192.168.0.1 and it will set it to that for you. | | Then, on the client machine set the network to obtain IP automatically. | | I attached a shot of the final TCP/IP properties for the network. | | | It worked for me. | | | Now to begin the quest for connection on the 98 box. | | | Thanks Bob for your persistence with me so far. Are you up for another | round, same game, different players? ;-) | | Pam | | | 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.
