    I am having problem with video conversation (webcam) on MSN messenger and my connection behind ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). Is there a way to fix this problem?

    I would guess that the problem come about because of the protocal that Messenger use's to do voice and video. Its the H323 protocal.

    The problem is with ICS all IP address inside your network (and rightly so) look like they come fron the single machine that is shareing the connection. This coupled with the fact that part of the H323 protocal requires the use of dynamic ports means that your going to have a night trying to get it to work.

    If there's only one machine your ever going to be using the webcam on then you 'could' foward the range of ports back to that computer from the ICS one but I'm not sure if or how you can do that with the built in ICS software.

    Hope that makes sense and helps.

    Ok, I think you probably 'could' have found a solution if you'd started here

    That lead me to ...

    and i 'think' the config file your going to be wanting is in the Conferencing and Messaging section ... here

    Good luck.
