ICS Win2K / WinXP not working
Radu Jun-09-02 07:14 AM
Gateway machine (P4 desktop):
- running Win2K
- connected to DSL cable modem
- ICS configured properly (2 network adapters, one to cable modem, the other to my second machine using crossover network cable)

Client machine (P4 notebook):
- running WinXP
- connected to gateway machine using crossover network cable (see above)
- ICS configured properly

Behaviour:
- MS network + sharing working properly between the two machines (using NetBEUI)
- IPX/SPX working properly (tested using games)
- TCP/IP link working properly (client machine can ping gateway machine, and gateway machine can ping client machine)
- gateway machine can access the Internet OK
- client machine fails when trying to ping external TCP/IP addresses
- if gateway machine pings an external TCP/IP address, the client machine can then do it, too (same address fails if only pinged from the client - i.e. before pinging from the gateway machine)
- even when ping succeeds from the client (after gateway pings same address), the client cannot display website in IE6 (using TCP/IP address not the name - i.e. DNS doesn't come into play)

HELP! (thanks)

Remove NetBEUI. Set the ICS client to get its IP address automatically from the DHCP server, which is part of ICS on the ICS host. Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP and you should be able to get rid of SPX/IPX unless you need that protocol for games. The cable may be marginal. Larry
