Specs: Windows Server 2003, SP2, Dual Intel Pentium III Xeon 1.2 Ghz, 2GB @ 133Mhz
I've got an older iMac, and i was wondering if it was possible to use ICS to share the connection from the iMac, through the server. I"m a mac noob, so detailed answers, please.

why not have the mac connect direct to the internet?

Actually, I already solved it. The reason I don't hook the mac directly to the internet is because it is a wireless router, located, 4 rooms, and about 50 feet, away. I can't run cable that far, and an apple airport card is pretty expensive.

Turns out that PC Tools firewall plus was blocking traffic that was coming from the mac to the box, preventing it from connecting to the internet.
