I wonder if you can help with a problem i have, here goes!

In my small office i have six networked Win XP Pro pc's (via switch) one of them has a
broadband internet connection (usb ADSL modem) that pc will be logged onto and logged onto the internet
all the time noone will us it. It's prime function is to share it's internet connection
with the other PC's (5) using the ICS. The function of the PC's are to use Windows messenger to offer
Remote Assistance to whoever invites us to help them on the internet. I want to know if
it is possible for all five pc's to be ingaged in an remote assistance at te same time (not with each other but different users
accross the internet, Will there be ICS issues?

answering here, as opposed to PM

Yes, it SHOULD work. ICS uses network address translation and remote assistance should work with this since the remote assistance information includes the internal ip address.

If you are using only the windows based firewall, all should function...if you are using a different firewall, or hardware, you must open port 3389
