together so I can share my isp with family... I just installed the aw world
server and entered the name password and cit number. it works I added a *

This is probably caused by a firewall of some sort. A friend of mine had
this exact same problem. Try to configure the firewall around the server.
(If you don't run a firewall then I am clueless)

ICS can be very hard to make work for worlds. All i can say is 'Keep
trying!', there *is* a way...

turn off Internet Connection Sharing ICS is needed though so I went to this
page and found a fix :))

Andras also just created an informative page about running the AW browser
and server behind firewalls and networks - I believe the URL is posted in
the worldbuilders newsgroup.

I have it working now Thanks to Hamfon and Andras for all the information
they post and share on the web...
I found a program called
"ICS Configuration 1.5"

That allowed me to open ports needed to host my AWworld and run Internet
connection sharing at the same time...
I am hosting my own world on my computer, The world is on the server
portion of my home network with the modem.
I also regained the ability to file transfer with the ports this program

Active Worlds
(Watch Out! Opens a wide port range!)
IN TCP 3000
IN TCP 5670
IN TCP 7777
IN TCP 7000-7100



I believe Windows 98se Internet Connection Sharing was the reason I couldn't
send files or host my world..... I have it all working now so Thanks.
