DHCP + ICS(Interent Connection Sharing)

Hi there

Want to achieve 2 things :-
1.Network based on DHCP
2.Allowing internet access using ICS for my other compute(i.e. server).

Situration
Network
1.Server-win2000 server
2.client-win200 pro

Internet Access
1.ADSL connection - via client.

Other
1.SQL Server 2000 on Server

I'm a newie to networks - Access\SQL developer.

Setting:-
Server
192.168.1.1(ip)
255.255.255.0(subnet)
192.168.1.2(gateway)
192.168.1.1(Pre DNS)
192.168.1.1(Alt DNS)

DHCP
1.Assigned a range
2.Added DHCP access to specific computer

Client
1.Fixed IP Settings

Further Details
1.Icon for Broadband - DHCP enabled I think - on the client

What do I need to do ?

Do yourself a favor and, instead of exposing your machine directly, get a cheap DSL router with integrated firewall. The start from below 100$ upwards and usually offer DHCP and DNS as well. It will save you a lot of hazzle.

Agreed. Companies like Linksys, D-Link, and Netgear all make products that will do all that for under $100

Hi there

Sorry for not responding - received ADSL Router on Friday.

Could not get to work.

Qn:

It has web-based interface, using CHAP authentication ?  Phoned ISP, they said I need to change to PAT or something, it would work.  Guy was not very helpful !!!

Read documentation, nothing.

Can you give me some directions where to look ?

N.B.

ADSL Router - also a hub - network working fine based on fixed ip setting.  Internet is not plus still to change to DHCP.

I'm not familiar with the Netgear configuration, but most of the DSL routers have a setup wizard of some sort that guides you through the basic steps.
If this one doesn't, the basic stuff that needs configuration is
* Your DSL router's internal IP address (probably labeled with something like Intranet or LAN or Internal Network); set that to a fixed address of your range, for example 192.168.1.254, with a netmask of 255.255.255.0. This will be your network's Default Gateway.
* Your DSL router's external IP address (probably labeled with something like Internet or WAN or DMZ); if your ISP didn't give you a fixed one (which is likely), this needs to be set to DHCP.
* The "dial-in" setup; some place you can enter the credentials your ISP gave you. If offered, you don't need to authenticate the other side; they will authenticate you ...
* If you already have a DHCP server running on your W2k server, you should disable the DHCP server on your Netgear. In your W2k server's DHCP range, make sure to exclude the router's IP address.
* If you already have a DNS server running on your W2k server, you can keep it; just configure it to forward external requests to your Netgear.

Hi there

Have progressed this problem :-

Network :-
1.Server - win 2000 server
2.Server - SQL 2000 server
3.Client - win 2000 pro
4.Client - Norton Firewall

IP Addressing
1.Router - 192.168.0.1
2.Server - 192.168.0.2 (DHCP client - reserved IP address)
3.Client - DHCP client

Working
1.Internet - both
2.SQL 2000 server on server - works (based fixed IP address)
3.Can ping from Server vs Local Domain of client - ok

Users + Domain
1.Administrator - network
2.imak - network
3.Domain - IMRANE0

Problem
1.Trying to log onto domain from client, first : using
'Administrator', second, using 'imak' users.

To join domain
A.
1.My network Places
2.Properties
3.Computer name - Workstation1
Member of workgroup - WORKGROUP
4.Changed to domain - Imrane0
5.Added - Administrator + password
6.Restarted
7.Logged on to domain - windows message - creating user profile -
nothing happens..................
B.
1.Tried wizard - gone threw entire process - at the end message
appears - access denied.

Is that due to firewall in router ? even both sides pings ok...

What I'm I missing....

Thanks in advance.
