    Hi (bit of reading here - hope someone manages to get the picture).
    I've got a (1) XP rig with two NICs and a second (2) XP with a single NIC. ICS is used to access the Internet from (2) through a cable modem that is on (1). It works splendidly.

    Now - I'd like to run Kerio personal firewall on (1), 'cause it gives me some comfort in being able to control what goes in and out (XP's built-in firewall is quite non-accessible...), but if I switch it on, ICS will no longer work properly (at least as far as IE is concerned).

    I've created a custom address group and a rule that allows any connections to/from (2).
    I can ping (1) from (2). I can ping anything, even URLs (they are resolved to the correct IP address, but using IE on (2) does not work.
    I asked Kerio to display alert boxes for all 'deny' rules, but no denied requests are shown... shouldn't it, if it's stopping anything?

    Do any of you have any idea of what I need to enable in Kerio (I have to suppose that that's what stopping it) in order to be able to use ICS all the way? If it can be done at all, that is.

    Edit: I have seen the option 'Is running on Internet Gateway' but I'd really like to stay in control... Rightly or wrongly...

    Thanks for any assistance, pointing me to previous threads, etc!!

    Why not just use a broadband router?

    Only because I did not have one lying around, but I happened to have an extra NIC...

    For $15 on a rebate deal, I'd buy the router in a heartbeat, it takes all the pain out of configuring the network and Internet sharing. As a bonus, it offers firewall protection. :)

    I won't be able to find that good a deal ($15), but I'm with you nontheless - I'm just too much caught up in the problem-solving (Occam is right, as always). And then it can be wireless as well...

    Kind regards.
