    One of my PCs has XP Pro and the client has Windows ME. ICS works fine except for one annoying problem. Webpages on the client PC sometimes load at full speed. At other times it loads sluggishly or doesn't load at all. Also, secured sites don't load at all. I have no such problems with the PC that's directly connected to the internet.

    Anyone know what the problem is?

    Do you have a firewall running on the client PC? A software one can sometimes block secure web pages if set up incorrectly.

    OK, I am now using the XP SP2 final firewall. It blocks off my ICS cmpletely. How do I configure ICF to allow ICS to work?
