[QUOTE="Tom"]\nHi\n\nI have a network with windows 2003 server with ICS enabled.[/QUOTE]\n\nAlthough Win2000+ SERVERS have ICS, they also have\nthe more flexible NAT built in with RRAS.\n\nNAT is only slightly more difficult to understand and\nprovides a great deal more flexibility and a few more\nfeatures but ICS still works.\n\nYou cannot use ICS if you are going to use Active\nDirectory or otherwise have an Internal DNS system.\n[QUOTE]\nI have run the\nnetwork wizard on my windows xp client. What is the next step in order to\nget hte internet working in my browser?[/QUOTE]\n\nAssuming a single internal subnet.\n\nIt's going to be using addresses in the 192.168.0.x\nrange because that is what ICS supports.\n\nWith ICS, you must make your clients DHCP\n(obtain IP automatically) clients OR you must\nconfigure them with an address in the (upper\npart) of 192.168.0.xxx -\- suggest 250+ if you\nmust put in a manual address but automatic is\nbetter.\n\nThey will automatically be set to use the ICS\nmachine as their Default Gateway and DNS\nserver -\- if you have another internal DNS\nserver this doesn't work correctly.\n\nTry it and if it doesn't work try some of these:\n\nping [URL="http://www.yahoo.com"]www.yahoo.com[/URL]\n\nIf that doesn't work try:\n\nping 188.8.131.52\n(this is yahoo)\n\nIf this works and the previous doesn't then\nyou have ICS working in general but DNS\nname resolution failing for the Internet and this\nmeans you probably don't have the Win2003\nserver set to use ONLY the outside DNS***\n\nIf that doesn't work try:\n\ntracert [URL="http://www.yahoo.com"]www.yahoo.com[/URL]\n(and report results)\n\nIf that doesn't work try (from both a client and the\nserver):\n\nipconfig /all\n\n(Cut and paste the output and send here)\n\n\n*** If you are going to use AD directory\nthen you really cannot use ICS and must use\nNAT instead because you need internal DNS\nand even if you try to use that on the ICS\nmachine you will find that ICS and DNS\nserver (the real one interfere.)\n\nFYI:\nIf this is your ONLY Windows server it\nprobably doesn't belong as the router/ICS\nmachine (too dangerous) but should have\nanother firewall/router/NAT/ICS do that\njob.
