ICS - host can access intenet but client can not
sampo Dec-31-00 06:45 PM
I have a PII 350 PC running Windows 98SE connected via a 10/100 PCI Fast ethernet card, to an Olivetti Laptop which has a 10 base PCMICA network card, and running Windows 95. I use a crossover CAT 5 cable. The computers are able to share files and printers. I installed ICS on the PC.
The problem is the client olivetti can cause the PC to dial an intenet connection, but can not access web addresses. Nor will it access web addresses if the internet is connected from the Host PC first.

Any suggestions as to how to resolve this would be appreciated.

The properties for the network neighbourhood show:

Client for Microsoft networks

10/100 mbps PCI Fast Ethernet Connector
Dial up adapter
Internet Connection Sharing

Internet Connection Sharing (protocol) Fast Ethernet
Internet Connection Sharing (protocol) Dial Up adapter
Internet Connection Sharing (protocol) Internet Connection Sharing
TCP/IP > (home) Fast Ethernet
TCP/IP > (shared) Dial Up Adapter
TCP/IP > Internet Connection Sharing

File and Printer Sharing

The Fast ethernet shows bindings for Internet Connection Sharing Fast ethernet and TCP/IP (home)
The Dial Up adapter shows bindings for Internet Connection Sharing dial up adapter and TCP/IP (shared)
The Internet Connection Sharing shows bindings for Intenet Connection Sharing (protocol) and TCP/IP Internet Connection sharing.

The TCP/IP properties are:

TCP/IP (home) Fast ethernet
DNS disabled
Gateway 192.168.0.1
WINS disabled
Specify IP address 192.168.0.1 sub net 255.255.255.0
Advanced – Allow binding to ATM No
Binding for Client for Microsoft Network and File and Printer Sharing

The other TCP/IP properties show
DNS disabled
No gateway
WINS – use DHCP
Obtain IP automatically
Advanced – allow binding to ATM no
Binding to Client for Microsoft networks and file and printer sharing.

The binding information in the properties of the 3 Internet Connection Sharing protocol properties are blank.

I’ve installed ICS several times now with no difference.

Try browsing the following web site: http://216.92.56.121/. If you can and you cannot connect to http://duxcw.com/, then you probably have a DNS (Domain Name Server) configuration problem. If not, please come back. Larry

Thanks for the prompt reply Larry.
I can access both from my host computer (which is working fine) but neither from the client, even though it is working fine as a LAN.

The client waits around then comes up with a DNS error.

If, when there is no internet connection running on the host, I open IE5 on the client, it causes the host to dial up and connect but that is as far I can get on the client.

I have a feeling it wil be something to do with protocols, but I've spent hours on this and its doing my head in!

Your asistance is much appreciated.

Open a DOS Window and type:

C:\>ping 192.168.01

If that works, go into the Internet Options in the Internet Explorer or Control Panel, Connections tab, LAN Settings button and make sure all of the boxes are unchecked. The ICS Client floppy likes to check the use Proxy box. Larry

I GOT IT WORKING! - after lotsa hours and while pouring over it looking at your suggestions I spotted it - I had 2 numbers in the gateway transposed. So simple, and after giving myself a good kicking for not seeing the wood for the trees, I'm at peace with both PC's.
Thanks very much for your help, it put me right although indirectly.
P.S. - a great site!
