    Unhappy Internet Connection Sharing

    Hi people, I have a bit of a problem and was hoping some of you might be able to help.

    I'm using Sygate Personal Firewall and I tried Microsoft's Internet Connection Sharing (ICS), but it wouldn't work. I then looked up on Sygate's website and found out that ICS doesn't work with the firewall. So anyways, I download Sygate Home Network, which is meant to easily enable ICS without any problems with the firewall. So I installed this, but I still can't access the net on the client computer. On the Sygate Home Network taskbar button, it says that the server is online, but I still haven't got any access to the Internet from the client.

    Would anyone know what I'm doing wrong or how to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance,
    Greg

    Yeah, thanks acid, id did. Here's the latest update on my problem:

    I pinged google, and Trillian works. So, that leaves me to believe that the Internet Settings are somehow wrong, cos I cannot browse with IE or Opera.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    Greg

    OK, well - the problem is now solved!! I'm happy as can be.

    Thanks heaps to ac1dsp3ctrum who helped me. The problem was that the client couldn't resolve domain names. Thus, I had to enter a DNS server into the Internet Settings.
