Hi

Here's a translation of a tutorial I've posted in the French forum (French version
here)

If someone could post English versions of the screenshots...



important note
the internet connection sharing is, basically, a software router.
this means that if a computer using the shared connection requires many connections and a heavy traffic, the ICS will use a lot of system resources on the "master" PC.
So, whenever possible, it's better to avoid using eMule on a shared connection (you may use the emule web interface instead).

... and of course, it would be a bit stupid to use emule on several computers at the same time


How to get a highID on a PC using the Windows XP Internet connection sharing

Preamble
The different screenshots of this tutorial (hosted on http://www.imageshack.us/) have been captured on a network configured as shown below, running Windows XP Home SP2
Posted Image
(RJ45 cross cable)
The IP addresses, on the local network, are 192.168.0.1 for PC #1 and 192.168.0.2 for PC #2. Different addresses can be used on your system.

Note (users feedback): as long as the Win XP Internet Connection Sharing is involved:
- the way the modem is connected to PC #1 does not matter much. AFAIK, the only thing that may change is the name of your connection in 1st step
- the way PC #2 is connected to PC #1 does not matter much either :)

1st step
On PC #1, go to Control Panel -> Network connections, and open the properties of the Internet connection
Posted Image

2nd step
In the "advanced" tab, click on the "Parameters" button, in the "Internet connection sharing" area
Posted Image
Notes:
- Under XP SP1, there's only one parameters button which can be used for both the firewall and the internet connection sharing.
- If the box "Allow other users on the network to connect..." is not checked, you have probably not opened the properties of the good connection (assuming that the internet connection sharing is already correctly set-up)

3rd step
Click on the "Add" button to configure a new "service"
Posted Image

4th step
Enter the parameters for eMule TCP port
Posted Image
Notes:
- The service description is only used to identify it in the list. You can enter whatever you want.
- Enter the IP address of PC #2, on the local network. It's not necessarily the same than in the above screenshot.
- The port number must be the same than in the config of the eMule on PC #2. It must not be already used on PC #1.
It's also possible to use different numbers for the external and internal ports. I didn't try this.

5th step
Click again on the "Add" button to configure a new "service" (see 3rd step)

6th step
Enter the parameters for eMule UDP port
Click here to see the screenshot (the number of images in each post is limited)

7th step
You should now see the two new services checked in the list
Click here to see the screenshot
You can now close the windows by clicking their "Ok" buttons. It's done.

It's exactly the same wether you use USB/serial/ethernet/wireless/whatever to connect to the modem. Maybe the names differ a bit, but the procedure is the same.

In this case, this is not the Internet Connection Sharing, just XP firewall... but it's basically the same thing anyway :)

Hey, this is a pretty decent tutorial. I think I'll move it to Quick help & guides :)

This tutorial seems great, but here's the deal: whenever I try to enable other users to connect to my PC (through the internet connection properties menu), the connection is simply cut off. It won't even open a webpage. It's as if I had turned it off. So, what's the problem here, can anyone give me some pointers?

I'm running on Windows Xp SP2, with its firewall turned off and Zone Alarm Firewall turned on, but allowing all kind of internet behaviour from e-Mule. I'm using a RCA cable modem.

This guide is great and works fine. The problem I found is that the IP of my secondary machine changes from time to time (from 192.168.0.6 to 192.168.0.33, for example, as the ISP assigns numbers within a range).
Is there any way of allowing for a range of IP addresses?

You multiply overhead and get worse results with two or more eMules.

Cheers :D

I don't know. (and I have only one computer right now...)
But you can certainly set a static IP for your computer. ;)

appart from what torpon said, the computer sharing the connection acts like a router: it has to handle all the numerous connections generated by emule; and this is not a sinecure. Even with only one mule.

It's much better to have an external router which does not use the computer's processor, memory, etc...

... And even in that case one mule is enough, two mules are useless (no faster downloads or whatever) and can cause troubles (lost of connectivity...) :)

May I suggest you to open a topic in Feature Requests for features you want, instead of converting this quick guide in something absolutelly different?

Cheers :D

hi Torpon.

Yeah, I can do that.

In looking at it, it seems most of it was was about testing-ports in regards to getting ICS working.

But if you think it's wrong, just delete it.

Heck, delete all of them if you feel like it. Doesn't matter I guess.

thanks
