Hi Pam, OK, I found that 2k dhcp is automatic. If you use ics on the 2k machine, it's address will be 192.168.0.1 . However, ICS seems to be mostly part of some wizard and NAT is the real part of it in 2k. It says to use Nat when you are having a problem with ICS. Set up Nat on the 2k machine and leave the other machines with the assigned IP addresses. This address has a PowerPoint presentation of slides that show how to setup Nat wizard screens. Download the presentation and view the Nat section. I don't know how to start the Nat wizard, you might do a search for it under start, search or help and support, whatever 2k has. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=/servicedesks/webcasts/wc101801/w cblurb101801.asp Bob Noble www.sonic.net/bnoble ----- Original Message ----- From: "Pam" <ltf01@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, February 05, 2003 1:12 PM Subject: [pcductape] Re: win2k to XP and 98 network | Exactly the problem.
