Keep losing ICS

Just a minor one this but, I have two computers with XP Pro networked together all set up with ICS and all working, for a while anyway !
What happens is, if I only use the host computer and dont turn on the other for a couple of days the one I switch on seems to lose the ICS and does'nt recognise the another computer is there !!

Both computers dont seem to hold the fact that they are in a network if turned on at different times.

Any ideas ?
This sounds very strange. The way you describe it I must say I have no clue. If it was using the clients and then turning on the host that caused a problem, it would be less strange.

Sorry. :(

If you mean you don't see it in network places, XP only polls for computers every 14 minutes (I think that what it is). Anyways, you could try leaving the Computer Browser service on automatic on the host PC.

Can you get to the PC's shares by typing the UNC path \\Workgroup\ClientPC

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
