How to Configure a Static Client for Windows XP Internet Connection Sharing

Posted August 24, 2004 by mikejc in Windows networking

This Tech-Recipes article describes how to configure a static client for Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).

Windows XP ICS automatically configures internal clients so that they can access the Internet by using ICS. However, you may need to configure a host, such as a server, statically rather than allowing the host to be configured dynamically. To properly configure the host with static settings, you must provide the host with IP address and host name resolution information. Also, you must configure the ICS host (the Windows XP-based computer that is running ICS) with the name of the client so that name resolution can function properly.
