    Default Internet Connection Sharing

    I have recently networked two PC's - one running XP and one running 98 SE.
    They both communicate fine over the LAN.
    I am running an ADSL modem on the XP machine (host) and have set up Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).
    The host is connecting to the Internet without any problems.
    I have set up the "Dial Up" as "sharing and firewalled".
    The 98 PC (client) sees the "gateway" on the host and shows the icon in the systray as being connected.
    I have set up the "Internet Options" in control panel using the setup wizard supplied by XP (on a floppy).
    My problem - when I open Internet Explorer or MS Messenger it will not connect to the Internet - for some reason it will not see the Gateway that is there.
    Any ideas on what I have omitted?

    ?:| i've never seen win98 show an icon when connected to the net though ICS.

    i'd get rid os XP's firewall for starters (get a better one once you have it all up and running).

    a handy site with ICS info

    The icon isn't there when you run the WinSE ICS wizard. But it is created when you rin the XP Network wizard on Win98
