  • How to configure the ICS without changing my IP addressing scheme

    G'day All,

    This is my first post in this forum. Recently I manged to configure my ICS on my USB modem. Now once I configure my ICS, it automatically sets my NIC IP as 192.168.0.1. Therefore, I have to go though entire wrig-morrale of changing my DHCP configuration and other AD settings. Is there any work around to this problem. Any information given will be appreciated.


    Regards,

    Re: How to configure the ICS without changing my IP addressing scheme

    Easiest workaround is to replace your USB modem with a proper DSL router, give it an internal IP e.g. 10.0.0.254 (or whatever suits your DHCP scope) and set it as the default gateway in DHCP

      Re: How to configure the ICS without changing my IP addressing scheme

      Dear Tom,

      Thank you for the suggestion. I know other method which works fine as well. Such as installing the third party proxy servers like CCProxy and Wingate etc.

      The objective of this discussion was to find a solution to get over with the 192.168.0.1 problem on the NIC. And to have an insight, why ICS setup 192.168.0.1 as the default ip address to the network.

      I keep programs like CCProxy as backup, in case my ICS goes down. I am still looking for an answer, why 192.168.0.1 and not the IP address scheme which we want.

      Regards

        Basically, ICS is designed for home networks where there is no admin etc.
        It can all be done by one click which sets a static IP on the LAN-facing interface, enables basic DHCP and DNS and lets clients connect pretty much transparently.

        Under those circumstances, the user would not be expected to know a valid IP address and would need to be protected from specifying a public range or an invalid address

          A search came up with this :http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q230148/

          That should hopefully help you change the IP range for the ICS DHCP service.
          Have you got another DHCP server on the site?
          If yes then you need to make sure they are not configured to supply conflicting IP configuration for your clients.

              Hey Guys,

              Unfortunately, I did not find the ICS Sharing in my registry to make changes. Could it be possible, the time when this picture taken. Its just my client machine is unhooked and the ICS is not active ???

                XP (assuming that is what you are using) may be different -- this article strongly suggests the address range is fixed:

                  Thanks for the observation Tom

                  At least washing the mouth is easily done, I've got to do another eye test though!!
                  Didn't pay enough attention after I saw last review date which was Jan of last year (Who said win 98 was dead!!!)

                  It looks like you are right, it seems to be hardcoded for XP.
                  One thing I am not sure though Anshu is why do you want to use ICS in an AD environment?
                  Check this article from the Petri site for more info: http://www.petri.com/configuring_ics...ndows_2000.htm

                    lol, you guys are funny.

                    However L4ndy the reason I am trying ICS, as I am learning Windows server 2003. I wish to find out what are the options available to share internet connection across the network.

                    While learning ICS, I stumbled upon 192.168.0.1. And I thought may be I should have some expert opinion on the subject. But so far I gathered different methods such as CCProxy and changing of DHCP settings of the DSL modem are advantageous over ICS. I can use my DHCP and AD as I always want them too.

                    Regards

                    Anshu

                    Note: btw L4ndy thank you for the article from Petri, that one is really good.

                      Since you have a server, look at RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Services) and use that. It does the same job as ICS but can be configured properly!

                      To go further, you can look at ISA server, Microsofts recommended proxy server and firewall, but we are talking serious money here....

                        Dear Ossian

                        Truthfully speaking, I am thinking to do the RRAS. It's just I am researching for the good resources or the primers on the RRAS..

                        Eventually, that is the next thing I am after.

                          Don't use ICS but use RRAS.
                          Way more advanced then ICS although there are many other better solutions like a decent router for a few euros or go for cisco for a couple of 100 euros.

                          This might interesting for you to setup RRAS

                            Thank you Dumber, I have two Cisco routers and a Cisco switch sitting on a rack.

                            I have:

                            1 x Cisco2503
                            1 x Cisco 2522
                            1 x Catalyst 2900, XL series

                            They are decommissioned ones. I collected them from a company, who upgraded there network and were selling old equipments. Good for me as my lab companions.

                            I am going busy with my work, therefore I could not get to configure my Cisco routers for the internet connection.

                            However I like to remind you again of my HSDPA USB modem. Which can not be configured with Cisco routers unlike the DSL modem.

                              There are DSL routers from cisco out there
                              See for example the cisco 800 series. Also not that expensive.
                              I almost bought one for my home network
