ICS on Windows XP with ZoneAlarm
Posted 08 December 2003 - 09:15 PM
When I activate the firewall, however, the Windows 98 machine is unable to browse the internet, though I can send messages from the XP machine to the 98 one; this means then that there would be a problem with DNS, perhaps?
ZoneAlarm automatically detects the network connection, IP address and subnet mask - and I can't alter it. I have set the trusted zone security on medium, even low, so that I am absolutely sure that the trusted zone is not blocked in anyway. I have also set the network connection to be on the trusted zone and the entry type is an adapter subnet (if that is right).
Is there any way of getting the two computers to share a connection with ZoneAlarm working?

This was about 1 year or so ago, I don't know if this has ever changed.
Check the FAQ's at zonealarm website see if this still needs to be done.

Under the "Internet Connection Sharing" section, choose the option "This computer is an ICS/NAT gateway".
That's all. You can leave your Trusted Zone setting on "Medium". Never tried it on "High", though.

Windows XP Second NIC:
Windows ME Primary
DNS: ISPs DNS address from running wntipcfg in Windows XP
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Doing that setup I have no problems sharing the ISP.
