I have Win2K server setup with Active Directory, DNS, DHCP, and all that good [-peep-]. I am also trying to share my net connection through my server to my Win2K pro clients. What settings do I have to enter to do so? I tried my best, and my client doesn't see the net.

OK, you have configured Win2K Server and "all that good", then

1 - you follow the Installation Wizzard on your Win2K Pro workstation(s),
and what seams to be the problem?

2 - What is supposed to be the dialup server?

Someone on another forum told me that DHCP and ICS don't work together, so I dropped ICS and installed a copy of Sygate Home network i had lieing around. I am not sure if this was the only problem before or not, but I can ping places if I have the IP (meaning DNS doesn't work). How would I go about setting that up? LAN DNS works fine, but not over to the net from the clients (only the server).

When Internet connection sharing,
Win2000's NAT (MS uses the term ICS) might incorrectly states that “to use the DHCP server on your Win2000 server instead of enabling the DHCP allocator, select the Automatically assign IP addresses by using DHCP check box”. You need to clear that check box.
