    I have a ' router ' as i will call it running windows 2000 server, service pack 2, it's IP is 192.168.0.2

    today i decided i would change my main system IP to 192.168.0.2, with the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 ( just like the router ). On doing this i could no longer access the net via ics.

    However, another machine on my network that has automatic IP asigning works fine, and all machines can ping one another so they all seem to be connected correctly.

    i've also specified the internet gateway on my client system to 192.168.0.1 thru the connection > lan setting in IE, and auto search, but with now luck.

    on going back to auto asigning of my IP address, the net now works fine. any ideas?

    ics acts like a dhcp server in that it will issue ips on the 192.168.0.* range and the subnet 255.255.255.0 buit the machine running ics must also have the static ip of 192.168.0.1

    make sure all your machines have the following done

    1. that they assign an ip automatically
    2. if they are 98 machines have use wins resolution for dhcp ticked
    3. that the ics machine has the correct ip and subnet

    if that don't work grab a copy of sygate, wingate, or something similar

    oh i see, im understanding that you can't manually asign IP addresses if you want t go through ics?

    so if i was to use a proxy such as winroute, or a dedicated firewall / router such as smoothwall, would it be possible to manually assign my IP addresses then?

    btw - i forgot to mension i was using win2k pro on my client machine - but i do plan on going back to 98SE.

    thanks

    I personally don't know about smoothwall but IPcop is similar and that uses dhcp but there is no reason why you can't use static ip's for your machines

    just remember to disable the dhcp in your routing software

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but from what you said, you just tried to give 2 machines on your network the same IP address. That isn't going to work. IP addresses need to be unique on the network.

    Re: Re: reguarding ics and assigning of IP address

    no no, my routers IP address is 192.168.0.1, and i tried setting the client machines ( main system u use ) IP address to 192.168.0.2

    but as i explained above - i can no longer go thru ics. i think you got it right the forst time :D

    I see. Check your original post - you said the 'router' was 192.168.0.1. That's where the confusion was.
