ICS Configuration

Hello, I have just set up ICS on a windows 2000 server (running professional edition). The server can access everything web related (ftp, http etc). I have also set up a client running windows xp professional. This client can only access ftp (but often has problems listing dirs), chat programs (msn etc) and the plus net website. Any help on configuring the xp client would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

RE: ICS Configuration

You dont give a lot of info but it sounds like a DNS problem. Check that the xp client has dns set ok by doing ipconfig /all at the dos prompt. It should also have the default Gateway set to the win2k pc.

Try open something by ip instead of DNS ie enter 195.102.33.54 into your browser and it should give you u-nets server. If you ping a server like www.microsoft.com it gives you the ip. If its ok on ip then its dns fault.

Other things to try on xp are doing a tracert to see were it fails or doing a route print.
