I have a new lap top which is connected at home through a LAN to my old desktop. Both are XP. They are sharing the ADSL internet connection, which is hosted on the desktop. I used AnalogX to make the internet sharing possible. Now I need to be able to access email (using Outlook), ICQ and MSMessanger from the laptop, how can I configure it?
The thing is that I was not able to make the connection with ICS, that is why I used AnalogX. Do you think I should try ICS again? I am completly new to networking, so I got the AnalogX advice and as it worked, that is what I am using since last week.

My solution?  Once again... Spend $20+ and get a hardware router/firewall.  Why:

1.  It will take a whole bunch of load OFF of your Computer running ICS or AnalogX
2.  You don't have to worry about configurations and such, like what you are doing right now
3.  It is much more efficient and harder to hack into, vs. a sitting duck, such as the computer running the ICS or AnalogX
4.  Less likely to fail
5.  You don't ever have to turn on your desktop to get the rest of the network to connect to the Internet
