I am currently trying to setup ICS on a Win2000 and Win98SE machines. I have search the net and forum posts for information, but nothing seems to help me. I believe it is all setup correctly, but my client cannot attach to the net. He are my specs:

Host Windows 2000
2 NIC Cards - 1 configured to connect to the Net, and one to connect to my Home Network.
Home net is setup with IP, Subnet, Gateway
Internet Card attached to ADSL modem setup with auto IP, and isp DNS given on setup.

Client Windows 98SE
1 NIC Card IP set to auto, WNS Disabbled DHCP Enblaed, Gateway, DNS disabled.

Both PC can see each other and share files, Host can connect to net, but client cannot.

Can someone help me?

here is the problem
DNS disabled.
dns needs to be enabled on the client, and use the dns ip provided by your isp (or
from a prompt on the host type
ipconfig /all |more
make note of the ip assigned by your isp
then on the client
from a dos prompt
ping 192.168.0.x Where x is the ip of the client)
ping the isp assigned ip of the host
ping www.experts-exchange.com
please post the results here

Thanx StevenLewis

You have helped me, I enabled DNS as well I had mistyped my host name. But I am now able to get the Net on my client. I did the pinging just as a precaution and they were all successful.

Thanx for you help
