Client in peer to peer can't connect to Internet
Mlg1234 Feb-18-01 04:25 PM
I am setting up a home network to share a DSL line. I have the TCP/IP network operating. I can see each computer from the other. I can connect to the Internet with the host, but not the clinet. I have installed and reinstalled ICS and tried about every configuration I can find information on. I can ping my host, but nothing else and I cannot get to a web page on the client by entering an IP address. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What hardware of software are you using to share the Internet connection? You need a router, NAT, proxy server, and possibly a second network adapter in the computer connected to the DSL MODEM (for some software NATs), or another IP address from your provider to do it. Larry

I am running Win 98 se on the computer connected to the modem. I have two nics in that computer, one to the LAN the other to the modem. I am running the Windows ICS program which I understand acts as the router and the NAT. The nic connected to the modem uses DHCP and has no ip address assigned, no gateway assigned, and no DNS assigned. I am running TCP/IP and can ping the other LAN computer. I have set the IP address the nic connected to the LAN in this computer to

The Other computer is running Win 95. I have assigned the IP address of this computer and have set the on the NIC protocol to

The client’s IP has to be set to auto or the ICS DHCP server has to be configured so it will not conflict with the client’s static IP. See MS Knowledge Base Article Q230148, How to Change the IP Range for the ICS DHCP Service, at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q230/1/48.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=ics&rnk=10&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=W98SE and Q238135, How to Troubleshoot Internet Connection Sharing Problems, at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q238/1/35.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=troubleshoot%20ics&rnk=1&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=W98SE. You may have to enable DNS and enter DNS server addresses in the client configuration if you use a static IP. Larry
