Windows 2000 DCC and ICS

With a special setup, it is possible to configure Windows95 for simultaneous
use of Direct-Cable-Connection and a Dialup Networking connection to the
using a 3rd party Proxy (like: WinRouteLite )so :

What about configuring and using Windows2000 for DCC and

I could establish both connection:
- connect from a Win95 DCC guest to a DCC-Windows2000 host
- connect from Windows2000 to the Internet

I was not able to use DHCP on
the DCC guest, so I configured
all values manually.

It seems to work partially, because if I make on the DCC host a
PING for an Internet website, it activates the ICS-dialing, it connects
to the Internet, it contacts the DNS-server and receives back the IP-address,
but then the PING is failing !

I am wondering:

when defining the sharing for
my Internet connection:
is "other computers on your
local network
" limited to
networked systems or does
a DCC connection also
qualify as a network ?

anybody an idea ? anybody got it to work ?
if yes, please drop me a note at

I could get ICS to work with
Windows2000 as a DCC Client on a Win9x DCC-host,
but not Windows 2000 as a DCC-host.
