Yup, that's right internet connection sharing is being a bitch on my pc.
As I am a picture person, I will let illustrations and screenshots do the work for me.

But firstly I will say, FTP works fine, Streaming works fine, the only problem is my PC will not let me enable internet connection sharing, nor will my xbox access the internet (imdb etc).

my setup

why is there no internet connection sharing available?

From evox.ini
CODE
[Network]

SetupNetwork = Yes
StaticIP = Yes
Ip  = 192.168.1.200
Subnetmask = 255.255.255.0
Defaultgateway = 202.0.49.1
DNS1  = 203.96.152.4
DNS2  = 203.96.152.12
SkipIfNoLink = Yes
SetupDelay = 5


From XBMP config
CODE
   <local>
       <!-- remove the asterisks to set local ip address and gateway statically -->
       <address*>192.168.1.122</address*>
       <subnet*>255.255.255.0</subnet*>
       <gateway*>202.0.49.1</gateway*>
       <nameserver>192.168.1.1</nameserver>
       <playlists>$HOMEplaylists</playlists>
       <timeserver*>207.46.248.43</timeserver*>
       <cddbserver>194.97.4.18</cddbserver>
       <thumbnails>$HOMEthumbs</thumbnails>
       <bookmarks>$HOMEbookmarks</bookmarks>
<subtitles>$HOMEsubtitles</subtitles>
       <cddb>$HOMEcddb</cddb>  
       <imdb>$HOMEimdb</imdb>  


Help apreciated smile.gif
Once I(you) have fixed this, I think i'm home free for this thing! wink.gif

edit: When I select imdb I get the usual 10600 or 10660 or whatever error (the cannot reach server error). - if this should be in the XBMP forum please move it...but I thought it was better suited to here. Sorry if i'm wrong smile.gif

without thinking to much (its a sunday)

you dont get ICS settings under the network setup, you need to have the modem attacthed to the PC to get it (IIRC) so I would imagine that you would need to set up the Xbox much in the same way you have set up yopu PC to acces the internet, in telling it the gateway and what not.

that should work, but like i said its a sunday and I am tired so i am prolly miles off biggrin.gif

maybe ICS isn't available cause you only have one nic. I believe it wants to take something plugged into one nic and route it out the other. The easiest thing for you to do would be to replace that switch with a 4 port router.

Ahhh...a router huh :/

I'm getting in another PC sometime this week. I could put 2 NICs in that. With the onboard NIC inputting the cablemodem, 2 going to the PC + XBOX. Would that do the job of a hub? (if I had something like smoothwall on it - its only a dual P500).

The reason why I thought I had to use ICS was because ICS _WAS_ available for me to click until a recent reboot. When I ticked it however I got some weird error however. So it probably wasn't meant to be there.

Would there be some way to get the xbox to think my PC is the gateway? Or is that impossible to do through a switch without ruining my current net setup?

PC= 192.168.1.122
XBOX= 192.168.1.200
GATEWAY= 202.0.49.1

Could I change the Xbox gateway to 192.168.1.122 and keep the PC gateway as 202.0.49.1. Then maybe the PC would sense the xbox attempting to get a net connection (and then allow it to be selected).

How doe sthat sound :/?

Thanks for the help guys smile.gif

there is routing software avalable for windows, check out

http://www.winproxy....dl_intro_en.asp


that has pretty relible port forwarding and what not, it shouldnt be to much hassle to install and get working.

Untill recently I had a similar setup with linux using "shorewall" worked like a treat smile.gif

what you're describing here is exactly what ICS does... enables the pc to "sense" as you put it traffic coming in on one nic and it will route or forward out its other and vice versa.

Again, a $60 router will do the same thing.
