    Hello all. I am trying to share a cable internet connection, and files, between two PC's without a router. Both PC's are running XP SP2. The main PC has two NIC cards, one to the 'net, the other to the second PC. I have turned on ICS on the first PC. Should that automatically detect the other PC? 'cause it doesn't. I can ipconfig/all. Is there info there that I can manually enter either on the second PC, or somewhere in the primary PC to help them all get along? Any help would be nice. Thank you.

    Thank you John. I had already found my way to that page, but I tried everything again, just in case I had missed something. No dice... Here is a copy of ipconfig/all from the "server" PC.

    That ipconfig /all looks good. What is the problem?

    You could show us an ipconfig /all for the "client" also.

    Before seeing that ipconfig and before learning what your problem is, I will make the wild guess that you have a (or two) 3rd party firewall (internet security) blocking at least part of your desired LAN access.
