  2. Hi,

    To disable ICS

    1. In Control Panel, double-click Network Connections.

    2. Click the local area network (LAN) connection or the dial-up
    networking connection that you want to share (that is, the one that
    connects to the Internet), and then, under Network Tasks, click "Change
    settings of this connection".

    3. On the Advanced tab, click to deselect the "Allow other network users
    to connect through this computer's Internet connection" check box.

    The message from the VPN software is wrong. It isn't possible to
    install or un-install Internet Connection Sharing in Windows XP.

    I've seen reports that you can solve the problem by disabling the
    ICF/ICS service before installing the VPN software and enabling the
    service afterwards.

    To disable the ICF/ICS service:

    1. Right click My Computer, and click Manage.
    2. Double click Services and Applications.
    3. Double click Services.
    4. Double click "Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) / Internet
    Connection Sharing (ICS)".
    5. If the Service status is Started, click Stop.

    To enable it after the installation, repeat those steps, clicking
    "Start" in step 5.

    Are you using the Cisco VPN client software? According to the Cisco
    web site, VPN Client versions 3.5(1)D and later have a parameter to
    ignore the ICS check prior to installing.

    Another possibility is to install Windows XP Service Pack 1. Please
    see this Microsoft Knowledge Base article for details:
