Win98SE Internet Connection sharing

By Vuitanh ·
I have PDC and other servers running on the real IPs. I recently used one machine for sharing internet connection with others computer. The PDC is now still on the outside and none of the client can log in. I added another NIC and assigned to the internal ips, but still doesn't work nor seeing other computer on the network neighborhood. How do I make the best so that I can have client use the resource of the server as well?

Win98SE Internet Connection sharing

I assume that you are running Win98 ICS. In my opinion, ICS is not the most stable methon to provide internet access because it requires the host to become a DHCP server and dole out IP addresses to the other machines. You probably want to avoid this. Consider installing MS Proxy Server instead.

I'm not sure I understand how your network is set-up but to use Internet Connection Sharing, you need to have two NIC cards installed on the ICS machine with one NIC card pointing to the Internet and one NIC card connected to an internal network.I think where your arrangement is failing is that ICS requires network translation - your internal machines MUST be on a different subnet than the subnet that connects to the Internet. This would also be true of proxy server.

Your system needs to be set up so there is only a single gateway to the Internet.

ICS is working fine. Just the authenication is not.
