WIN95 and WINXP PRO ICS

    I have two computers. 1 is using WINXP PRo SP1 with ICS enabled. The 2nd computer is a laptop with WIN95 running.

    The question is how do I setup the WIN95 machine to use the ICS on the WINXP PRO system.

    I have tried using the networking disk that was created on the WINXP PRO machine, but when I run it on the 95 machine it says that the OS in not a supported OS for it. I have to use WIN98 or above.

    TIA

    to tell you the truth, i don't even think it's possible to use ICS with XP and 95. i think 95 was practically cut out of everything to do with windows 95

    Oh, you can, you can! No problems. Just make sure Win95 has TCP/IP installed and then set it to automatic IP. That's it. :)

    Does Win95 get an IP? Run winipcfg to check. It's not the PPP adapter, it's the other one.

    try installing the following protocols on the Win95 system:

    - IPX/SPX
    - NetBEUI

    Now go to the properties of IPX/SPX and tick the box saying "Enable NetBEUI over IPX/SPX"

    Now, in the TCP/IP properties, make sure DNS is enabled and set the host as the system name and the domain as the workgroup name. Also add the winXP IP address as a DNS server.

    Now go set the gateway IP to be the same as the WinXP IP.

    OK everythin til u get back to desktop and reboot the pc.

    it should work then :)

    (i would use 192.168.0.2 or something for the Win95 pc with a subnet address of 255.255.255.0)
