NT4>NT2000 Internet Connection Sharing

By george3674 ·
How do I configure the Server (NT2000 Server) and the Client (NT4) to use Internet Connection Sharing on a ethernet. All of the directions that I have seen are not clear as to whether one is working on the Server or the Client. None deal with NT4 asclient. Do I need to install two incidences of TCP/IP?

NT4>NT2000 Internet Connection Sharing

First, what kind of Internet connection do you have (T1, Cable, DSL, etc.)? Next, you will need a router. If you are using cable or DSL, you can pickup a Linksys (www.linksys.com) cable/DSL router for about $200. You other option is to use a multihomed computer (a computer with 2 NIC's in it). On NIC will be for the Internet connection and the other NIC will be for the LAN. If you use your server as the multihomed PC, install 2 NIC's, configure one NIC with the IP address and subnet mask for your LAN. Configure the second NIC for your Internet connection. On that NIC either bind your Internet IP address (if you have a dedicated IP) with the appropriate mask, or select to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server. If you are using therouter, it has NAT built into it which is needed for sharing the internet connection. If you are using the multihomed PC, you will need to install NAT software. Some examples are SyGate (www.sybergen.com) or NAT32 (www.nat32.com).

Assuming the ntserver in in the same lan as the other pc's:
In the win2000 create a dun entry to your isp.
right click, properites,sharing.
check "enable dial-on demand".
be sure it's lan ip is static (usually 192.168.0.1).
All the clients haveto use dhcp.
shot!
