When I used to have my old network setup on a hub we used Sygate for connection 
sharing and it worked great.  Since moving up to a router and cable connection 
DHCP isn't really necessary but is used on 3 of the 4 computers in our 
workgroup and we no longer use ICS or Sygate at all.

  The machines are connected via a switch.  And currently they (the server and 
the XP client) are communicating via static IP's.  ICS will not work though 
with static IP's, hence the need to use DHCP, which allows connection sharing.


    A couple of questions.  First, are you connected via a hub sharing a dialup 
connection through the Win2K box?  And second, why do you feel it necessary to 
use DHCP?  Why not just use static IPs?
