ICS for Win2000 - Client Setup

NOTE: This information is for configuring Windows 2000 Professional as an ICS client.  If you are configuring a Win95/98/Me client, go to this page.

You need to do two things to configure your computer as an ICS client:

  • Configure the application settings to be sure that you are not trying to use a Proxy server.

  • Configure your Client's TCP/IP settings.

Application Settings

If you've been using Wingate or another Proxy-based server, your browser, email and other applications may be set to work via a proxy.  Go to the Preferences settings of each application and make sure you change them to "Direct connection to the Internet" or to use a LAN.  Note that this is the setting to use, even if the ICS server computer is connecting to the Internet using a Dial-Up connection.

Open the Internet Options Control Panel and click on the Connections tab.  Click on the LAN Settings button near the bottom of the Window, and you'll see the window below

LAN Settings window

Make sure that Automatically detect settings is not checked, as shown above.

TCP/IP settings

Open the Network and Dial-up Connections folder by right clicking My Network Places on the Desktop and selecting Properties.  Then right click the connection for your LAN and select Properties.

Select Connection

Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click Properties.

LAN Properties

Now decide whether to have the client receive its TCP/IP settings automatically from the ICS Server or to make the settings manually.  Follow the steps in the appropriate section below.

 


ICS for Win2000 - Manual TCP/IP Client Setup

If you'd rather set your TCP/IP properties manually, do the following:

NOTE: These settings assume that the IP address of the LAN NIC in the ICS server is 192.168.0.1.  A Win2000 ICS server always uses that address, but you can specify a different one on a Win98SE or WinMe ICS server.  If the IP address of the ICS Server's LAN NIC is not 192.168.0.1, then either change it to 192.168.0.1 or substitute the IP address that it is set to, wherever you see 192.168.0.1 in the steps below.

NOTE: You can have a mix of automatically and manually assigned client machines on your network.  Because ICS' DHCP server assigns addresses sequentially starting at 192.168.0.2 and works up, assign your manual addresses starting at 192.168.0.254 and work down.

Set the IP address to a unique (not the same as any other machine's address) address from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254.  Set the DNS server address to 192.168.0.1.

Specify IP and DNS Addresses

Click the Advanced button and set the Default gateway to 192.168.0.1 by clicking Add, entering the address, and clicking Add again.

 Specify Gateway

Click OK to exit from each screen.


That's all there is to it! Enjoy your shared connection!

NOTE FOR Win2000: 
If you need to map ports for special applications, go to this Microsoft page.

If you're having problems, please go to this page.


ICS for Win2000 - Automatic TCP/IP Client Setup

The easiest thing to do is to let ICS' DHCP server assign TCP/IP settings for the client.  Go to the network card's TCP/IP properties and set it to Obtain an IP address automatically  and Obtain DNS server address automatically.



 

Obtain IP and DNS Addresses Automatically

Click the Advanced button and remove all Default gateways.

Remove Gateway

Click OK to exit from each screen.  The network card should obtain an IP address and other settings from the DHCP server on the ICS server.

You can use the ipconfig command to check that the computer has successfully leased an address.  If the IP address appears as 0.0.0.0, use ipconfig/renew  to get a new lease.


That's all there is to it! Enjoy your shared connection!

NOTE FOR Win2000:
