Windows 98 ICS and NT4.0 TCP/IP
whit Mar-10-00 06:44 PM
I am running a windows NT4.0 TCP/IP network. All clients are assigned IP addresses which connect them to the NT server. I would like to share the internet connection on one of the clients with the other clients on the network. Installing ICS changes my bindings and IP address so that I am unable to authenticate to the NT server. Is there a work around or other means for doing this?

I assume you are using static IP addresses? ICS has probably assigned the computer running ICS the same IP address as your NT server:, right? First, if it were me, I would move the Internet connection to the NT server and use SyGate (see http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm). SyGate is better than ICS and you will have your connection on a computer which is on all of the time? If you want to continue with your configuration and use ICS with static IPs see http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q230/1/51.asp. Be sure the Windows Clients are still configured to log into your NT domain. Also, you can find a lot of useful info on ICS by searching the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://search.support.microsoft.com/kb/c.asp) under Windows 98 SE using ICS. If this does not answer your question, please come back. If it does, it would be nice to know that it did. Larry
