Question about mapping TCP ports with Windows ME
HeavyD1850 Feb-06-01 11:17 PM
Greetings all,

I am using Windows ME and I am sharing a cable connection off another computer in my house. Everything is working fine except for 1 program. Here is what the documentation says. Hopefully one of you can decipher what this means and tell me how to do it in Windows ME. Thanks Guys.

"If you are using internet connection sharing then you need to map port 412 to your local IP. If the IP of your internet connection sharing device was and the IP of the computer you wanted to use Direct Connect from was then you would first map a TCP link from to "

Thanks for any of your help.

You have to punch a hole through the ICS NAT for that program to work. It is explained (sort of) here: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q231/1/62.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=ics%20port&rnk=4&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=W98SE

Harley Acheson’s ICSCFG.EXE shareware program makes it easier. It is a “comprehensive utility for configuring "Internet Connection Sharing" (ICS), an optional component of Windows 98 Second Edition. Full control over ICS settings and incoming port access. Create, Edit, Import, and Export port mappings. View real-time TCP/IP statistics.” You can download it here: http://members.home.net/compiling/icscfginst.exe. Larry
