    The Windows firewall / ICS service
    is not running, it refuse to start and I got this error message "the
    resource is
    used by another application"

    Currently Internet sharing connection is working as the server with 1 nic
    and 1 router instead of 2 nic. Have to disable Windows firewall / ICS service
    otherwise all clients can't connect to Internet.

    How to configure the firewall?

    Can anyone advise me.

  2. Hi Nick,

    You need to run the CEICW (connect to the internet wizard) from the TODO
    list.

    Note that with a single nic configuration, your "firewall" is an external
    device. I presume (hope) you have a device between the internet and your
    network that provides this function. Otherwise, either get one, and/or
    better, double home the SBS with two nics.
