Unable to get ICS to work


P

Peter Twydell

SWMBO and I have two PCs running Win XP SP3 connected by a USB crossover
cable. Hers is connected directly to an ADSL modem. We are able to see
each other's PC completely, sharing folders and so on.

The problem is that I cannot connect to the Internet from my PC any
more. I used to be able to, but it was possibly installing Norton 360 on
her machine that killed the link somehow. All Norton products have been
removed, and her PC is now running Windows Firewall and Avira Antivirus.

What do I have to do to restore my Internet access? Settings in Internet
Options in IE? IP address of the ADSL link? Or what?

Check to see if it's the firewall blocking you; it probably is. Same
was true with Norton if it had a firewall.

Sorry, brain fade in the original post. Using ZoneAlarm, not Windows
Firewall.

Doesn't work with ZoneAlarm switched off. The Local Area Connection
Status for the NIC on my PC doesn't show any outgoing packets when I run
IE.
