Internet ConnectionSharing

By jlaws ·
Hola,

I am trying to setup a simple home network that utilizes ICS. My Windows 2000 server is that box that has the Dial-up connection. I have a WIN 2000 pro that i am using to try and access the connection over a 10/100 network. My server ismy PDC and I have upgraded to AD. My server has the default ip address of 192.168.0.1. My workstations TCP/IP setting are set to obtain a address automatically.

My workstation is part of the domain, and is logged on when I am trying to accessthe internet. The Dial-up properties are set to Dial on demand.

Each time I try to access the internet from the workstation I receive the default error page in IE.

Can someone shed light as to what the heck i am doing wrong?

Thanks

Stone Maxwell

Not sure whether what you want is possible. ICS is definitely a WORKSTATION sharing solution, never intended for W2K Servers especially not if they have AD. The point is that ICS itself sets up a DHCP server and a limited DNS server, and these couldconflict easily with the built-in DNS of an AD server.
This having said, you could still try some basic tests. E.g. seeing whether the workstations do get a valid DHCP address (192.168.0.x), do have the right default gateway (the serve), and whether they can do a ping to a normal Internet address like www.hotmail.com. If not, there are DNS problems and I bet they are caused by your exotic wishes.
FYI: the Microsoft way for doing what you want, with W2K server, is installing NAT services on the server. Also free but a lot more difficult to configure than ICS. But so is an AD server, and an AD server in a 'simple home network' seems out of place anyway...

The host computer has to be connected to the internet, in this case W2K server to utilize ICS

The client station can only access the internet when host computer is connected and client will then share that connection

There should no other DHCP service running in the server. This conflicts with the ICS assigning ip to workstations. Also check the proxy setup in the workstatn's browsers.

Also, try to stop local dns service.
