"Configuring ICS for Windows 98"

By vpierce ·
This is the scenario:

-4 machines are running Win98

-1 machine has been configured as the host
for ICS and the other 3 have been
configured as clients(per your article on
ICS)

-The host machine is using AOL to get to the
Internet.

-AOL is not loaded on the clients

-The host gets to the Internet, no problem

-The clients will not connect.

What am I missing in this scenario?

There is very little info in your post to determine why the ICS is not working,more info on your hardware would be helpful.
Did you create a startup disk and load ICS on the clients?
Does light show all NIC cards are working?
The client has to have a browser and host has to be connected to internet for clients to connect.
ICS is not a simple setup it may work and it may not,my last setup took 4 days to complete and it came down to a network file missing from the OS,will be glad to help if you would repost with more info on how the machines are networked.

Firstly, make sure that VPN (Virtual Private Networking) is NOT Installed. For some reason this always causes a problem. Next go to each of the clients and PING the host's IP address to make sure all can communicate with the HOST. Make sure automatically detect LAN settings is enabled on all clients. Make sure that on each of the clients, the DNS server and Gateway are set to the host's IP Address. Make sure that Dialup Adapter is selected in the ICS options (if dialup) and the correct NIC is selected for the adapter used to access the network. That should fix the problem. Good luck!

Also I just remembered to tell you to make sure you disable ALL firewalls temporarily. They have a nasty habit of stopping data transfer. If it starts working with firewalls disabled, enable them one by one, every time creating a rule of ICS
