Hi Everyone,

I am setting up a rack mounted 2k3 server, I need to connect to the net to download windows updates etc.

I only have ISDN at home and my ISDN adapters do not have 2k3 drivers :(

My Xp Pro machine already shares it's internet connection with another PC on my network. The 2k3 server is also on my network.

Is it possible for the 2k3 machine to connect to Xp pro and share it's internet connection via ICS?
If so, please tell me how, it's driving me nuts trying to get it to work :(

Thanks
Andy

why don't you download drivers on your XP machine and then copy them over LAN to your W2k3 machine. It's much easier this way the to set up ICS.

Good idea, but you will probably want Internet access for that server anyway, so here is a link to a Beginnners Guide to ICS...:
