I have a PC with 2 NIC Cards, (Call it PC1).  The First NIC Card is connected to a DSL Modem.  The IP Details are :

WAN :
IP               : 195.172.181.2, SubnetMask : 255.255.255.240, Gateway      : 195.172.181.1, DNS : 212.135.1.36, 195.40.1.36

The PC can connected to the Internet without any problems.

Its second NIC Card, (LAN) is connected to a switch and has the IP details :

LAN :
IP      : 192.168.5.240, SubnetMask : 255.255.254.0, Gateway : <blank>, DNS : <blank>

I have another seperate PC, (PC2), attached to the same switch as the LAN NIC on PC 1.  Its IP details are:  IP: 192.168.5.222, SubnetMask : 255.255.254.0, Gateway : 192.168.5.240, DNS : 192.168.5.240.

Both PC's can ping each other but I want PC2 to be able to get internet access "through" PC1, but it cannot.  I think I need to add some sort of route command but I dont know what.  Can somone tell me how I achieve the result I am after.

Both PC's are Windows XP Service Pack 2.  Windows Firewall is switched off on both PC's and I'm aware of the security problems but I need to do this as a test please.

Have you enabled Internet Connection Sharing?  You'll need that.

BTW, it's "NIC", not "NIC card".  You've already said "card" by saying the "C" in "NIC".

Look in the properties of the EXTERNAL network card.

As stated above you will need Internet Connection Sharing setup on PC1, MS even has a video on how to set this up, please watch it here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306126

Hi backpedal1,
by the way, if you use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS), you won't be able to assign the IP address to the second machine manually: it will have to be assigned dinamically from the DHCP service of ICS and will HAVE to be in the 192.168.0.x subnet (subnet 255.255.255.0)

Elbereth.

Is this the only way to do this.  Ideally I would like to control my own IP information.  Can I not achieve the same result through adding routing commands to the PC's ?

For a number of reasons I cannot use ICS, I need to control my own IP details and we have a Domain controller, and another DHCP server on the network.  Any other ideas ?

Insert a router so you can do NAT.

"I hafta" doesn't work in this situation.

> Can I not achieve the same result through adding routing commands

Routing commands identify direction of flow, not the sharing of addresses, which must be unique on internet

if you don't want to enable ics, then you have to enable nat using netsh:

i haven't done this myself, but i know that it theoretically should work... do a search on EE about NAT and netsh
