You need to enable Internet Connection Sharing on computer 1, and
computer 2 need DNS servers specified.

With the low cost of routers with built-in switches today you might
consider a small 4 or 5 port router/switch. I use the linksys bef41 but
netgear and others have perfectly good units as well. The router gives
better security from internet bots, etc. and the switch lets up to 4 or
5 computers to connect to each other or the internet. If one is made a
server either the router or the server can handle the dns duties. I
have one data/file server with up to 9 pcs connected through a larger
switch but the process is the same for 2, 4, etc.

You might also let the router handle the dns as that will make dual
booting your server or workstations a little easier when you want to
check out alternative os's.
