Description:Provides network address translation (NAT), addressing and name resolution services for all computers on your home network, so they can access the Internet through the shared network- or dial-up- connection.
This service is mainly intended for home networks, and it includes its own DNS- and DHCP-Server, and makes use of the NAT module. If on a corporate network with own DNS-, DHCP-, RASS-Server, then ICS might conflict with these. One should instead use Routing And Remote Access or ISA-Server for providing access to the Internet.
