enabling ics

By msfiroudis ·
I have a win98 connected through a hub to a win2000 which has a external modem connected to it.I'm trying to share the internet so that the win98 can dial through the win2000 to the internet.I do have the demand dail setup correctly and the internet sharing option checked also have the connection w/demand dial enabled. I have the win98 setup w/the correct gateway of the win2000.But I still cannot connect to the internet w/the win98.Do I have to have ics on the client(win98)?If so, when I try to install it,it tells me that the network configuration is not complete and it won't install.I can see each other in the newwork neighborhood.Any help would be appreciated.Thank's in advance....

But I think the article does not say anything about setting up a client on the Win98 box. I believe you may need to create a floppy disk on your W2K box and load it up to your W98.

Hope that helps.

I assume you have TCP/IP installed on both machines. Configure 98 client to obtain IP address and DNS server address
automatically, you should not have to specify a gateway. The ICS should assign to your LAN nic on your 2000 machine and assign a 192.168.0.** to the 98 machine. In IE properties on the client select connections-setup to start the connection wizard. Choose the manual/LAN connection option. I think you want to clear the "Automatic discovery of proxy server" option. You don't need ICS installed on the 98 client.
Hope this helps.
