Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)



ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) is a LAN (Local Area Network) protocol.

For a better security, Look 'n' Stop  should be installed on both server and client PCs.

The server PC is the one directly connected to the Internet. The clients PC are those connected to the Internet through the server. ICS is setup on the server. Below are two examples of a small home LAN using ICS :


Example n°1 : 2 PC linked by a twisted Ethernet cable

We can notice that the server has 2 IP addresses. One IP enables the server to identify itself on the Internet. The other one enables the server to identify itself on the 2 computers LAN.
This network configuration applies also to Ethernet ADSL connections and Ethernet Cable connection. The server USB port is then replaced by an Ethernet card.


Example n°2 : 3 PCs on a LAN, by a HUB

A single twisted Ethernet cable is not sufficient to connect more than 2 PCs. A Hub (widespread and very cheap hardware ) enables to network the 3 computers. In this example, the server IP address on the local network is 192.168.0.1 and the IP addresses of the 2 clients are 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3. 

 

How to set up Look 'n' Stop for
the Internet Connection Sharing ICS ?

The PC on which the Internet Connection Sharing is seutp is called server. The other PCs that connect to the Internet through the server are called clients. It is possible to have many client PCs if you have a LAN with a HUB.

On the Client PC, import the rule ICMP:ICS Client from this file ics.rie.
On the server PC, import the rule IP:ICS Server from this file ics.rie.

For Windows XP SP2 import the ruleset SharingSP2.rie.

Important: if the server is running Windows 2000 or XP SP1, the standard ruleset setup with Look 'n' Stop is sufficient. It is useless to import other filtering rules.
