Windows 2000 ICS Advanced Configuration

Installing ICS using the default values (like: IP-address for the Windows 2000 ICS-host)
works fine for a home-network, but in an office setup, there is most often already a range of IP-addresses defined, so there is a need to configure ICS to use non-default IP-addresses.
As for
Windows98SE, a change can only be made via a Registry editing.

I searched the registry for "" and found it as part of the Adapter settings:
key: IPAddress

Strings are stored in the Windows 2000
Registry as 16-bit characters, so editing
requires to be very careful.
(or use REGEDT32)
I changed (via ASCII-code values) the
IP-address to
Also the Subnet Mask may need
to be changed,
in my example: from ""
to ""

When making such a change on the ICS host, you will also redefine on the ICS-clients the
TCP/IP-values for IP-address, subnet-mask, Gateway, DNS-server.
