    setting up Internet Connection Sharing

    Now that you guys (and gals) have been so helpful in walking me through the setup of networking, I thought I'd turn to you for insight on setting up the Internet Connection Sharing option.

    Just as a reminder, the laptop is running Win2k and the desktop is running Win98se on one hard drive with WinMe on a second physical drive; consequently, I'll need instructions for all three o/s

    TIA!

    Re: setting up Internet Connection Sharing

    Start here: Windows 2000 Internet Connection Sharing (Note, the page contains links for the Win 98 / ME setup also).

    It is worth noting a few things:
    ICS expects your network to be set up a certain way, so the changes you made could be changed again, to accommodate ICS, I strongly recommend writing down all network settings as they exist now in case problems arise.

    Second, it would seem you need to run the ICS setup for Win2k connected to Win98, then again, for Win2k connected to WinME, I have not set this up in a dual boot before, but it should work ok.

    James:
    Excellent reference.

    Scott:
    Looking at your FAQ in W2K, it looks like you have set up your network to use NetBeui as the protocol. You will have to switch your network to TCP/IP before you install ANY of the connection sharing options.
