ICS and outlook express
skin Mar-07-00 02:46 AM
After reading the how to on sharing my cable modem ISP, I ran out and bought WSE and had everyting up and running in a couple of hours. No problem... Well besides I cannot retreive mail with my second PC. I can access my Roadrunner email accounts with the first pc and I have checked my login info numerous times. Does anyone know what could be causing the problem? I use outlook express for my mail.

I use Outlook 2000, but somewhere in your mail service settings there should be a box checked that says connect using your local area network. Could you come back if that worked so others will know exactly what the fix is? Thanks. Larry

Exactly what happens when you try to retrieve mail? Are you sharing a mail box or using separate E-Mail accounts? Larry

The host 'pop-server' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'Ed and Joe', Server: 'pop-server', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

That is the error message I get when I try to send/rec mail.. I have varified all of my settings again today.. they are exactly like the settings in the computer which is connected directly to the cable modem..

I do not share a mail accounts. I have one email address on one computer and another on the second one. make sense?

Open OutLook Express (I am referring to version 5) on the computer that CAN retrieve mail…
Click Tools>Accounts>Mail>Select the Mail Account>Properties>Advanced tab
Are the check boxes that say, "This server requires a secure connection…" checked?
If not, go to the computer that can’t receive mail, and uncheck the boxes. Larry

Nope Nothing. My settings are exactly the same for both computers (could that be the problem?). When I run napster, I must check the proxy server box or it will not connect. Does windows ICS create a proxy server that I need to identify?

ICS is not a proxy server. It is a Network Address Translator (NAT). The ICS client will not work with the Proxy box checked. The client configuration differs from the ICS host. ICS is not installed on the client. It must have the ICS host computer’s IP address set as a gateway. See http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/win98se/client.htm for client configuration instructions. If you are going to use programs like napster, play Internet games, or participate in conferencing, then you are probably better off downloading and using SyGate (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm).

Bummer, I had hoped since I had some luck getting napster to work with w98se, there was hope for Outlook express. Thanks for your input Larry.

this one is fresh in my head as I was up most of the night to get my @home mail working. This is a 2 step process:
First thing to change is account settings for outlook/express. Click on tools/accounts/properties for your email account. Under the servers tab input the IP address for your mail server incoming mail & outgoing mail. Don't leave it as mail and mail. This only applies for clients not host computer. if you don't know the address use ping commmand from host computer and ping the name of your mail server "ping mail" for you @home customers. Write this number down along with the suffix, you'll need it again later.
next step you are going to input the IP address from mail server in tcp/ip properties of client computer. The trick for the client computers using ics is to enable dns in tcp/ip properties. type in host name "mail" for @home users.
<24.222.8?.?> and suffix alsv1.occa.home.com for you @home users. Input address and press add under DNS server search order then enter in domain suffix search and press ok. Sorry the writing isn't clearer but I haven't had much sleep. This worked instantly for me on 2 seperate client computers let me know if it works for non @ home users as well. I am planning on trying to make some money at this once I gain enough knowledge, this site as well as many others has really helped
thanks all

on an unrelated note i keep getting conflicting information in regards to gateway settings. My sytem is up and running with ICS, TCP/IP on second nic on host is IP specified with subnet mask but no gateway, Client is setup also with no gateway entry, obtain IP address automatically,use dhcp and as above mentioned dns enabled. is my system the only one setup this way? I can share files, printers,access email and am very secure according to all the web based security checks. any help appreciated.

Thanks for the input. The client should have set as a gateway. Larry

I don't know what I doing wrong , could you simplify the instructions a little bit more. I have a @home connection and I'm trying to access my email on my laptop.
