OVERVIEW OF MICROSOFT INTERNET CONNECTION SHARING
=================================================

Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing enables you to configure your home
computer network to share a single connection to the Internet.

With Internet connection sharing, the computers in your home network are
used as follows:

The Connection Sharing computer (sometimes called the gateway)
The computer that connects your home to the Internet also
provides some of what makes Internet connection sharing
possible: private Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and name
resolution services for the other computers on the home
network.

Other networked computers
The other computers set up to use Microsoft Internet
Connection Sharing on your network can access the Internet
through the Connection Sharing computer, using private IP
addressing translation.

When a computer on your network sends a request to the Internet, its private
IP address is transmitted to the Connection Sharing computer. The Connection
Sharing computer translates that private IP address to the IP address of the
Connection Sharing computer, and then sends it on to the Internet. When the
results are returned, the Connection Sharing computer translates the IP
address back again and routes it to the correct computer on your network.

The only computer on your home network visible to the Internet--meaning,
having a direct connection--is the Connection Sharing computer. Other computers
on your home network connect to the Internet through the Connection Sharing
computer. They do not have direct connections to the the Internet.

If you set up Internet Connection Sharing to use automatic addressing,
Internet Connection Sharing uses the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
DHCP dynamically assigns private IP addresses to all computers on the home network.
You can also disable the automatic addressing service and statically assign an IP
address to each computer on the network.


USING THE BROWSER CONNECTION SETUP WIZARD
=========================================

Connecting to the Internet using the Connection Sharing computer is
quick and easy using the Browser Connection Setup wizard. The wizard
sets up your browser to connect to the Internet using your network
adapter instead of a dial-up adapter. When you've completed the wizard,
you are ready to browse the Internet through your local network.

System Requirements
-------------------

Before starting the Browser Connection Setup wizard, make sure that the
following conditions are met:

Your computer has Windows 95 or Windows 98 installed.

Your computer has a network adapter installed and connected to
your network. For more details, see "Network Configuration
Requirements."

Your computer has TCP/IP installed and bound to the network
adapter. For more details, see "Network Configuration
Requirements."

Your computer has either of the following browsers installed:

Microsoft(R) Internet Explorer 3.x or later
Netscape Navigator 3.x or later

The Connection Sharing computer is connected to both the Internet
and your local network.

To start the Browser Connection Setup wizard for the first time:

1. Insert the floppy disk you made when you installed Microsoft
Internet Connection Sharing on your Connection Sharing computer into
your floppy disk drive.
2. Click the Start button, and then click Run.
3. Type:

a:\icsclset.exe

where "a:\" stands for the floppy drive.
4. Click OK.


NETWORK CONFIGURATION REQUIREMENTS
==================================

If you want to access the Internet by using your local area network
(LAN) through the Connection Sharing computer, you must have a network
adapter installed that is bound to the Microsoft TCP/IP protocol.

INSTALLING A NETWORK ADAPTER
----------------------------

Install a network adapter on your computer by carrying out the following
steps. This should only be required if your network adapter does not support
Plug and Play (Plug and Play is a feature of Windows that automatically
detects and installs new hardware).

1. In Control Panel, double-click the "Add New Hardware" icon, and
then follow the instructions on your screen.
2. If Windows is unable to find your new hardware, you will be asked
to insert the manufacturer's disk supplied with your new hardware.

Installing Microsoft TCP/IP
---------------------------

Install the TCP/IP protocol on your computer by carrying out the
following steps. TCP/IP is the protocol your computer will use to
connect to the Connection Sharing computer.

1. In the Control Panel, double-click the Network icon.
2. Click Add, click Protocol, and then click Add.
3. In the Manufacturers list box, click Microsoft.
4. In the Network Protocols dialog box, click TCP/IP, and then click
OK.
5. In the list of components, click your network adapter, and then
click Properties.
6. Click the Bindings tab, and then select the check box next to
TCP/IP.

NOTE: Currently, the Browser Connection Setup wizard does not automatically
install the TCP/IP protocol for network adapters.

TCP/IP Settings
---------------

To access the Internet using a Connection Sharing computer, ensure that
the TCP/IP settings for your network adapter are set correctly by
carrying out the following steps.

1. In the Control Panel, double-click the Network icon.
2. In the list of network components, click TCP/IP associated with your
network adapter, and then click Properties.
3. Select the "Obtain an IP address automatically" check box.
4. Click the WINS Configuration tab, and then select the check box
next to "Use DHCP for WINS Resolution".
5. Click the Gateway tab, and then remove any installed gateways if any
are listed.
6. Click the DNS Configuration tab, and then select the check box next
to "Disable DNS".
7. Click OK to accept the new TCP/IP settings
8. Click OK to update your new network configuration.

NOTE: These changes require restarting your computer for changes to take
effect. When you are finished, the computer will restart.
