ICS Static IP

By JKK ·
My ICS on my LAN was working good until I had to set static IP addresses on the workstations. Once I changed the ICS host from 192.168.0.1 to 192.9.200.x and my workstations from (Obtain IP address automatically) to 192.9.200.x. The ICS host dial-upinternet still works fine but the WS
cannot find a Web page(Server time-outs). The WS can talk to the Host pc and do sharing.

Thanks

ICS assigns IP addresses to workstations, not you. You screwed yourself when you did that. Why do you feel that you had to set static IP addresses?

I on a privity network with a UNIX server that has static IP,s. The network requires I use a certain range on IP's to share and communicate on the rest of the network.

He's right. ICS has its own IP addressing scheme and doesnt like anything else. This is another reason NOT to use ICS.

NetGear RP614 routers are your friend.

Get rid of ICS. Use a router as a gateway and all the PCs can connect to the internet through there.

If you feel that a router is not the answer for your present situation then there is another alternative. Look at Wingate - www.deerfield.com. This is a pretty good proxy server software that allows good functionality for your private LAN to the Internet via a demand-dial connection at a reasonable price. It has the capability to assign IP's also but it won't die if you choose to assign your own. I have used it in the past with good results.

A router using NAT is still the best way to go however.
