ICS and peer networking

By jwpluto ·
I've been trying to implement internet connection sharing and peer networking on two pc's. One is Win ME (client), other is Win2k (host). I've got the two pc's to see each other through Net Places, but think it's using netBEUI and not IP. I can pingfrom the ME pc to the Win2k, but not the other way. As a result ICS isn't working. I've run appropriate wizard on the ME machine and configured the NIC on the ME with 192.168.0.5 and the NIC that connects the ME to the Win2k pc with 192.168.0.1 and crossover cable. I've also entered the latter IP as the gateway on the ME pc. Still no ping from host to client. Detailed help would be appreciated!

If you can ping that means its using TCP/IP and not netbeui. It sounds like there is a network component problem on the w2k host. Try to ping 127.0.0.1 on the host. This check sends a signal down and back up the layers to see if tcp/ip is installed correctly. If that doesnt work remove all the network components reboot and reload them and make sure you specify all the settings again i.e. unique computername, identical workgroup, unique ip address, identical subnet mask.
Let me know if this works

I have had this same problem before. After doing the network checks as stated in the first post to be sure that all is well try booting the client machine first then the ICS machine. It doesn?t make any sense to me but this worked for a past set up on an AOL dialup and three machines behind it.
There is also a check box in the network properties dialog to make a protocol default. If you want to pull up network properties, then TCP/IP for the Ethernet card then go to the advanced tab and check off the box ?make this protocol default?.

To bijnarrp@hotmail: Can ping loopback just fine. Mis-stated ping success. Can ping from host to ME but not ME to host.

To madcateast: Tried booting order and setting IP as default - no change

I have had many a problems trying to get ICS working with 2000 and 9X, here's someting to try.
This is not so much troubleshooting the ICS problem as it is the pinging problem, but if you can't ping from one to the other in either direction then ICS is not going to work.
First make sure you subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0, change the default gateway on the ME machine to match it's IP (192.168.0.5) then try and ping your host and see what happens. Post back with results and we can go from there.
