Problems with setting up 2 xp machines for networking and ICS
Posted on 2004-04-29
I have 2 XP machines setup for networking and ICS. The host machine has two network cards in it one setup for the lan side and the other for the internet as specified in the instructions on how to di this by Microsoft.
The host machine can ping the client and can access the internet no problem.
In network connections the client can be seen by the host.
On the client the host can be seen and also the internet gateway is visible.
Packets are being sent and received on both connections.
At the moment the client is picking up all information for the host on 192.168.0.1 for dhcp, dns and gateway. I have tried to manually set these but still cannot ping 192.168.0.1 or extenal either.
I am using a crossover cable to directly connect each machine.
Can anybody help? PLease!
