I am running Windows 2000 Pro on my 2 home computers. I have a NIC in both and link them via a Xover cable. The file+Printer sharing works fine. I also have a broadband cable modem connected to the USB port, this shows up in Network and dial up cons as "Local area connection2" and the NIC as "Local area connection" If I enable ICS for the USB modem the file sharing does not work? I am told either that the workgroup is unavailable or that I may not have permission. By Disabling ICS the file sharing is restored?? Why is this?
I have asked a similar question before when I was having this trouble but now I know I am able to sw. between ICS\file sharing. see the link -http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_20744622.html#9621005
Do I need to alter some settings to allow ICS to work with file sharing? I think I heard that in XP the firewall that was part of ICS meant you couldn't use file sharing without altering some settings but I have not been able to find anything about windows 2000?
