Using ICS certain web sites will not get routed
clon Apr-05-01 10:58 PM
When using ICS and a DSL modem, the host computer is running Win2000 and can see all web sites fine. I have a hub connecting a laptop, which can see the host computer fine. It can reach the web with Internet Explorer and I can go to Yahoo and all major web sites (DNS works fine etc.). However, some websites cannot get through ICS. For example:


I can reach these fine on the host computer, but not through the sharing computer. Interesting enough, I tried to ping the website, and the ping does not work, even from the host computer - HTTP does, but ping doesn't. This leads me to think perhaps there's something about ICMP and ICS (although I haven't investigated this enough). Anyone have a similar problem? I'm thinking of installing Linux instead, I've been meaning to for a while. I think it will make a better router.

A much better router is a router (see http://duxcw.com/faq/ics/waysshare.htm) and they can be had for less than $100. The first site is using a secure connection (https). The other one might be switching to a secure connection after you login(?). In IE, be sure that PCT 1.0, SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0 are checked in Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Security… Larry

Well, I have the computer, and a hub already, so I just wanted to set it up on the DSL connected desktop. I thought about the HTTPS, but other HTTPS sites work fine, and the second site is redirected, but not to an HTTPS URL. I had the same problem with Windows ME and 2000. No idea what it could be. I played around with NAT on W2000 server, but couldn't get it working (it was late at night, I might have been making a mistake). I don't know if this would make a different. However, off the link you supplied I found Sygate. I downloaded it and it works great! I even got their firewall. However, I'm still going to put Linux on (dual boot to start). Thanks for the link though...
