RRAS - The manual way.
Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) is a feature of Windows 2000 that allows a PC to act as a router. One of the functions RRAS enables is to provide Network Address Translation (NAT) across various interfaces. By utilizing RRAS and configuring a Demand Dial Interface with NAT it is easy to customize the gateway machine and provide the same functionality as Internet Connection Sharing provides.
