internet sharing

I have a small microsoft network with one server and 6 workstations.
I have ADSL working on the server but the internet is not being shared on the workstations.
I can install a Proxy server and that works but I dont want to use a Proxy server.
I just want to have plain internet connection sharing.
How do I do that? I want all workstations to have a static IP , not "obtain IP address automaticlaly"

Can anyone help ?

Win 2000 server doesn't need some third party software for sharing the connection. Just enable internet connection sharing and don't define it as a DHCP server and the job is done. Anyway, you'll need some knowledge about sharing an internet connection. If you think so, I'll try finding some documentation on the WEB for you.

Good Luck

HI

Lets pretent that your server have IP 192.168.0.1 ( when you enable internet sharing on your server you will get this IP for sure) then you have to setup clients GATEWAY: 192.168.0.1 and DNS : 192.168.0.1. Or another option is obtain IP address automaticaly. It is up to you but better is setup static IP address.

more information look here:

It's routing and remote access, in Win2k server , my mistake .......internet connection sharing is in Win2k
See this:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/rras/rras/routing_and_remote_access_service_rras_start_page.asp
here's some books you might want to use:

see this for a funny training http://www.intelinfo.com/sign-up/microsoft_windows_2000_server_training.html

but the best way for you to find documents you need is to do a google search with the string <<  "windows 2000 server" routing basics >>

Hope this helps

Is your ADSL connection plugging into a router or direct into the server?  

You will have to setup NAT in order for the PC's to share the internet connection.  Either on the router if applicable or using Routing and Remote Access in Windows 2000.

If you are going to use ICS then you MUST use dhcp you cannot assign static ip addresses.

I think I pointed desisant to his solution and provide him some good reference where to start from. He never came back to tell us if he managed to achieve his goal.  Still waiting :)
