I have a problem, I use windows server 2003 r2, have 2 Internet Card Properties (internet card)> Advanced tab> just "Windows Firewall" display but ICS is not display

Help me, i need ICS


Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) is for consumer/client systems, not for Windows Server OS. You need to use the Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) features in Windows Server. Please refer to this Microsoft KB article for detailed information on setting up RRASS for your version of Windows: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816581

It sounds like you will only need to worry about the Routing and can skip the parts about the VPN (PPTP) Remote Access. But Routing with NAT is the equivalent of ICS.

There might be some limitation on the types of network interfaces that are supported in Windows 2003 and 2003R2. Specifically I remember there were challenges in setting up wireless (WiFi/GSM/3G) type NICs.

Good luck.
