Do you have two NICs in the host computer? One going to the modem and the other going to the other computer via the crossover cable? I'm going to move this the Networking and Security forum for you now. Also obviously the host computer must be on for access on the other computer.

It's looking for the IP address of the NIC (the one used to network the 2 pc's) on your host computer, which is what it's supposed to do. I've never used ICS as I had read that it wasn't very good. So I don't know what or what it did not set up for you. On your client computer check :Interent Options/Connections/Lan Settings. The proxy server box should be ticked, with your IP(for the NIC on the host computer used to network the 2 PC's ) and port. Make sure they're the same IP address.

I once connected 2 comps win95 and win98 and somehow using no proxy software got them to share a net connection , but i think it was a one off.

also if you are adding more computers or want not to have to turn both on to get access consider a router.
