Part 1 - Installing ICS on the operating system
Windows 98: Followthis guide from PracticallyNetworked.
Part 2 - Port Forwarding
* For Windows 98/ME clients, it would be easier to use the ICS Configuration tool. Once installed, follow the outline to this guide on how to set it up (although it won't look the same).
Make sure the firewall is disabled. Click on Settings.
•Click on Add.
•You will need to create two new services, one for TCP and the other for UDP.
This one will be for TCP. Enter in the IP address of the computer that's attached. It should be using a IP address that begins with 192.168.xxx.xxx. To find out what it is on the attached computer, (Win 9x: Start > Run > winipcfg | Win 2k/XP: Start > Run > "cmd /k ipconfig" [without the ""]). Pick any port between 1024 and 65535. Enter this into both the External Port field and Internal Port field. Lets say you choose port 40500, for example.
•Use the exact same numbers from above, except select the UDP radio button.
•In DC++, go to File -> Settings.
Enter in your external IP address, which can be found here. Use the same port you set up in the new service you created.
•DC++ should now work in active mode!
