Problem - Lan?!
Nitek Jul-29-01 01:58 AM
Hi Larry,
first let me give a little info on spec.
Only 2 computers with a AOpen 5 port hub and two patch cables.

The host computer is using WinME, AOpen and 3Comm ethernet cards, and the other one is 98se and AOpen ethernet card.

I have followed your steps through creating the LAN and ICS, but I couldnt get it working.

1) I set up the patch cable and hub onto both computers and tested it with NetBIOS, I was able to transfer files between the two computers.
2) I installed ICS onto the host computer, and the ICS interface is different from the picture you shown. (the WinME verson
3) It automatically set up the TCP/IP info and created a install disk for my client computer.
4) I used it and it set up the gateway for my client computer.
5) Now I double-checked my IExplorer Option to see if Proxy is checked and it was not.
6) Then I tried and it doesnt work... but file transferring between computers was possible.

Is there a step I skipped or is there anything I done wrong? Please help.

Thanks

make sure on the client .. the IP of your ICS machine is in gateway on the client...

if you run a firewall make sur you enter the client as a trusted IP

Q. How do I configure my ICS client computer so it will connect to a web server on the Internet? The ICS host computer connects OK, the TCP/IP protocol is setup correctly on both computers, and the local network works fine. I get a "cannot find server" error message whenever I try to connect to any web site from the client.

A. Open a DOS window in Windows and type ping 192.168.01...
C:\>ping 192.168.01
If you get a response (no time out), the local network is working OK with the TCP/IP protocol between the ICS client and the ICS host. Try:
C:\>ping 216.92.56.121
If you get a response, the ICS client just made a connection to a host on the Internet. Do the following...
Start, Run, enter winipcfg on the ICS host. Click More Info. Record the DNS Serverís IP address. This is the primary DNS server. Most Internet Service Providers have two DNS servers. Click the button with Ö on it to obtain the IP address of the secondary DNS server and record it. Close winipcfg. Go to the ICS client. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network, highlight the instance of TCP/IP bound to (associated with) the network adapter connecting the client to the host computer, Properties, DNS Configuration tab, select enable DNS, enter the primary DNS serverís IP address in the box below DNS DNS Server Search Order, and click Add. Repeat for the secondary DNS server. Click OK and restart Windows when prompted. No see if you can browse the above IP address by name; i.e., http://duxcw.com/. That name was sent to one of the DNS servers which looked it up and sent back the corresponding IP address.
Larry
