Internet Connection Sharing

By josef911 ·
My computer has Win 2k. the gateway computer has Windows Me. We have ICS set up and it works, but I was wondering if I can do tasks such as Windows Update without messing up the gateway machine. I heard somewhere that was possible. What are my options?

Internet Connection Sharing

I have NT, Windows 2000 and Windows 98 second edition and though the I share one modem between them the windows updates and any other downloads occur only on the machine accessing the internet.

Windows update detects the operating system and gives you downloads related to them and has no effect on other computers sharing the internet.

Good luck

The update (windowsupdate) happens only on the machine that is accesing the internet, nothing will happens to your gateway.
