How to configure EZProxy

Specs: Windows XP, Cyrix 250MHz 256MB RAM

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.

The default gateway is the "road out" so to speak. It needs to point ot the Internet connection.

In the first computer is should be the Intenet IP address, the public one. In the second computer it should be pointing to the first IP.

You don't need a proxy, worry about that later.

How do you specify the Default Gateway? I can't do it through Network Connections>Connection Name>Properties>Networking>Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). It just gives boxes for the IP Address, Prefered and Alternate DNS Addresses. Thanks for all the help!!!

Probably the easiest thing to do for you is go buy a router. For under $50 you will have a better connection and a more friendly user interface complete with instructions!

That aside have a look at some basic networking sites.
