|Hi all, please bear with me. I am new to networks, IP Addresses, and things like that. So please bear with me.|
I have a direct cable connection between a desktop computer and a laptop computer. Both are running XP. Now I want to share an internet connection. I downloaded EZProxy. I can't figure it out for nothing (The help files are not explanatory). I have everything set up as follows:
Host Computer IP Address: 10.0.0.1
Host Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Host Default Gateway: None (Please help with how to set this)
The client computer is set up as follows:
IP Address: 10.0.0.2
DNS Server: 10.0.0.1
Default Gateway: 10.0.0.2
I can ping both computers and they work fine. I can share files. But I don't know why I can't share an internet connection. I think the Default Gateway on the Client Computer is wrong, but I don't know how to set it. I don't see a box to enter it under Network Connections>Properties>Networking>TCP/IP.
So here are my questions:
1. How can I set the Default Gateway on the client computer?
2. How can I configure EZProxy for Internet Connection Sharing?
1 more note: I used WinGate to share internet, and it worked very well, but I would like something free.
