2000 ICS and LAN Static Addresses

We have a small network of W2K, W98, UNIX computers along with Networked Printers all connected via a hub.  I'd like to setup Internet connection sharing for modem dial-up but need to have static IP addresses as well to support connections to the UNIX (SGI) computer.  W2K Professional.  Peer-to-Peer. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

If you use ICS from win2k pro, then you should be able to put your LAN on using Private IP's, not accessable to the internet .

On a Win2K Professional, install your modem and a NIC.

Create the dial-up interface (for the modem) and enable internet connection sharing. Make sure that you select "dial-on-demand".

The ICS process will modify the IP address of the NIC to 192.168.0.1 (static) and enable a mini-DHCP and mini-NAT on the Win2K pro.

Note that ICS by default assigns IP 192.168.0.1. You can change these settings like this:

Just set the internal network static IP network addresses as you please.

For a related setup, look at this PAQ:

Hope this helps.
