Default Troubleshooting ICS on the host - help

Hi,

I have recently tried to connect a number of clients to a host PC running
ICS but with no success. I have included details below; If anyone can help I
would greatly appreciatate it.

thanks



I have turned ICS on but the clients on the network are getting no response
when trying to access the internet through IE.

So far I have carried out all the client troubleshooting (found in
knowledgebase) and they are obtaining a correct set of IP information (i.e.
dns server, gateway, IP address, subnet and dns extension). No connection is
occuring at either the name or IP address levels.

I have also set the Host to allow the clients to alter the connection and
also to dial when a request is made. No attempt to dial by the host is made
when a client attempts to access the internet.

On the Client, the internet connection icon is showing not connected". when
double clicking on it, it breifily says connecting, then connected. then
reverts back to not connected.

The Host is connecting to the ISP ok.

all machines are XP Pro SP1.

IF anyone can point me in the direction of a good troubleshooting guide for
ICS on the host, or has an idea on what could be wrong.

Are you running a firewall on teh host pc? If so check the settings.

Default Troubleshooting ICS on the host - help

I have the internet connection setup with XP's firewall. Turning this off
doesnt make a difference though

Is the host TCP/IP configuration set up correctly on the Local Area
Network connection?

IP address: 192.168.0.1
Gateway: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: (leave blank)

Setting the Dialup Adaptor to be shared should automatically set those
values but check them to be sure.

The ICS client PCs should be set to Obtain IP address automatically. You
mentioned that you turned on ICS on the client PCs, that is not only
unecessary but may be causing a conflict. Only enable ICS on the host.

Hi,

I have checked all the addresses and all are as should be. However I have
found that I can get it working by removing one of the lan cards in the
computer( it has 2, as a result of upgrades)

Thanks for your help
