ICS through a NTL Digibox

I've setup ICS through ADSL modems before, but I have been asked to setup a 2nd computer to access the internet through a first that is using a NTL Digibox as its connection method.

Both Pc's operate on a MS network where all the file sharing and printer sharing works fine. The two Pc's are connected via a RJ45 crossover cable.

The first Pc that presently connects to the internet is running Win Me and the 2nd Pc, that I want to connect to the internet through the first (via ICS I thought ?), is running Win98 SE.

As I mentioned earlier, the first Pc connects to the internet via a NTL Digi box. There is a USB network adapter that connects to a RJ45 cable, that runs eventually back to the Digibox.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Graham.

Hi diggisaur,

When I try and load ICS I am no longer able to connect to the internet on that Pc (page unavailable etc).

When I check Network properties, the ICS components seem to be there and the IP address has been assigned (192.168.0.1) to my lan network card.

But as soon as I uninstall it, I can connect to the internet again.

Do you think I might have to look at runnuing a Proxy Server ?

If this is the case, is this something that can be added as an application/component to the first Pc, or is it a more serious piece of kit or software that is required.

Best Regards,

Graham.

It might be something with the Digi that prevents you from running ICS. Is it possible to run the two computer from a network hub (4port something cheap) and plug the digi into the hub?
