ICS and Internet Explorer
Posted on 2000-04-16
I have a small Windows 2000 network- one W2K server and 5 W2k Pro Workstations. The server has a 58 KBS Modem and I have setup Internet Connection Sharing on the server so that the server acts as a gateway to the Internet. If I go to one of the workstations and Ping an IP address on the Internet the modem kicks into life establishes a connection with the Internet and my ping is replied to - so I know the server is routing to the Internet OK . But how do I configure Internet Explorer to make use of the servers Internet connection so that I can surf the net from the workstations -I tried telling IE5 that the server was a Proxy server and that did not work -but if the only solution is to buy Proxy Server - I cannot see the point of ICS. Can anyone help ?
