Hello campers - trying to set up internet sharing for XP using my pocket pc.

Currently I have an HTC Apache running AKU 3.5 with internet sharing. The interface to windows gets a 192.168.0.xxx IP address with a gateway of 192.168.0.1.

I can't seem to enable NAT/ICS because the default IP address it assigns is 192.168.0.1, I read on MS tech net that it is possible to change those settings in Windows 98 or ME, however no discussion in Windows XP.

Any ideas guys? I'm trying to get ICS working so I can get mobile broadband working once again on my mac :)

You got me confused there... I couldn't understand what you are trying to achieve. You want to use the data network on your Apache to a Windows XP box and from there share using ICS?

Yes. The reason behind it is due to a lack of Mac support on the Pocket PC platform, XP in a virtual machine gets around that though.


Data network (166.xxx.xxx.xxx) <-> Apache (with internet sharing 192.168.0.1) on XP side <-> (192.168.0.xxx) XP 'lan adapter' to Apache

On ICS:
XP 192.168.0.1 assigned by default to lan adapter (actually virtual one to mac os) <--> Mac os 192.168.0.xxx.

I actually found that if I put it to 192.168.1.1 on the XP to Mac bridge it appears to work, however previously when I tried 10.1.1.1 ICS didn't like that. Previously both interfaces had 192.168.0.xxx ranges which caused issues (often wouldn't work at all with both interfaces enabled, through to working for 5 minutes and then dropping).

Tried that... but it fails when it comes to adding the Pocket PC to the bridge.

The pocket PC connection appears as a LAN connection within network connections. When one tries to select Lan 1 and Lan 2, and then hit bridge - it fails.  Its using a USB connection.


I've managed to get ICS working on a different IP range now, so its touchwood and hope for the best.
