Google Plus Hot Search Trends: ICS

Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) is the use of a device with Internet access such as 3G cellular service, broadband via Ethernet, or other Internet gateway as an access point for other devices. It was implemented by Microsoft as a feature of its Windows operating system (as of Windows 98 Second Edition and later) for sharing a single Internet connection on one computer between other computers on the same local area network. It makes use of DHCP and network address translation (NAT).

ICS offers configuration for other standard services and some configuration of NAT

With Internet Connection Sharing, you can connect computers on your home or on your small office network to the Internet over a single connection. For example, if you turn on Internet Connection Sharing on a computer that connects to the Internet by using a dial-up connection, other computers on the network can connect to the Internet through the dial-up connection on the Internet Connection Sharing host.

You can use Internet Connection Sharing to permit yourself and others on your local area network (LAN) to perform different tasks at the same time. For example, one person can send and receive e-mail messages, while another person downloads a file, and yet another person browses the Internet. You can also gain access to your corporate e-mail accounts from a client computer while others on your LAN cannot. You can use Web-enabled programs (such as downloading updates) and Microsoft NetMeeting and other video conferencing programs.

Before you can turn on Internet Connection Sharing on a host computer, the computer must have two network connections present. One network adapter configured to connect to the internal home or small office network, and another connection that is using a 56K modem, ISDN, DSL, or cable modem to connect the small home or office network to the Internet.
