I just can't get internet sharing to work.
The connected pc used to run Win98, and I used WinProxy for a proxy server. I set IP addr's, and that's it.

With win2000 I cannot do that. I enable internet sharing, I set the other PCs to use proxy 192.168.0.1, ping works but there is no tcp/ip service...

Can you ping something on the internet by name?  ie. yahoo.com?  If so, then both name resolution and the networking is probalby ok.  How are you setting the other PC to use the proxy?  Are you setting the browser? or specifying the ICS machine as the default gateway?

You should not need to set the computers to use proxies. what i did was set up internet sharing(is) on the computer with the connection. then went to the other computers and ran the internet setup wizard. told it to connect to internet using LAN. and it worked. you have to rerun internet setup wizard each time you change or do something to IS.

gandalf79 has the answer, I think. Internet Connection Sharing essentially makes the ICS computer a gateway to the Internet, and that means IE can connect through it directly--no need for a proxy server.
