Hi Pam, That's the button that will do it without the wizard. The last email I sent about Nat seems to be the way to go for now.

Do you happen | to know where to find this wizard? | The only thing I've ever done in the past is simply check a box that says | "Enable ICS......." which is located in the dial up properties. | | | Did you rerun the ICS wizard after changing the NIC out? | | | 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. | | Pam | | | 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? | | | Cheers! | Sandi | | | | What you describe is pretty much what I understand too, and is what | I tried | to accomplish. But it isn't doing what it's suppose to do. Was | hoping for | someone to be able to go over the settings with me and find what I'm | obviously not doing right. | Since the loss of ICS with the XP machine occurred when I changed | nic's in | the server machine I can only assume the problem is in my new setup | on the | new nic. | | As for the 98 box..... that's going to be a different kind of | problem. | I think I need to make sure teh 2k box CAN network properly with the | XP box | before I tackle a box that has other problems too. | | But for tonight I gotta call it a night. Not back up to full speed | yet. | | Thanks everyone for your input so far. | | 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.
