Windows Firewall / ICS won't enable
Posted on 2004-11-20
I've recently moved into new lodgings, my housemate has his computer wired up to the broadband connection. I am trying to set up internet connection sharing, so that I can access the net via a crossover cable.
Problem is, on my housemates PC I cannot enable the internet connection sharing thing, or even set up a small office / home network!
If I try to enable the windows firewall / internet connection sharing (ICS) service in services.msc it tells me that "1068: The dependancy service or group failed to start"
Incidentally, Norton firewall keeps disabling itself apparently.
This isn't my computer, and I can't convince him that Norton is more trouble than its worth. I'm not allowed to make any major changes.
