Internet Connection Sharing

By rkent_it ·
How do I setup Internet Connection Sharing on Windows Millennium? I have a cross-over cable; AOL 6.0 installed, IE 5.5, some VPN protocols, NETBEUI, TCP/IP, File and Print Sharing, Internet Sharing, Client for Microsoft Networks. What do I need to do step-by-step? what protocols do I need to configure, and what protocol do I need to select to configure the Master Browser. Is it true that download speed would be faster if the IRP PACKET SIZE was changed from Automatic to Large? URGENT HELP NEEDED!!

Follow the onscreen instructions
using ICS there will be an icon on the server computer in the system tray that will let you know how many computers are connected and the host computer will need to connected to the internet before client will connect to internet
Let the network settings of the Host computer
control the protocols,ICS will set the network from the Host.

I've already done all that, still does not work. What do you mean ' Let the network settings of the Host Computer control the protocols, ICS will set the network from the Host?' How?

Check the crossover cable to see if it is working,by checking the LED's of the network card.I had a similar problem and had to redo the cable.
The other part was that I did not specify any IP addresses on the client computer,so the host computer IPaddress is used,another thing ICS requires that you have the host connected to the internet,I would get this setup before setting up the static ip end to use VPN.

share a single (or multiple) Internet connection with an entire
