    I have a Sprint EVDO card connected to one XP machine which connects to the
    Internet. I have enabled ICS on this connection. I have also created an
    ad-hoc network on this same computer.

    On a second computer, I've connected to the first computer via wifi ad-hoc
    networking. This second computer shows an Internet Gateway in its Network
    Connections. Pinging internet addresses (e.g. ping www.google.com) returns
    normal responses (as if this second computer is connected to the Internet).
    However, when I launch a browser on this second computer, all web pages time
    out.

    Also, attempts to ssh from this second computer also fail.

    Is there some reason that the ICS seems to be working for the pings but not
    web pages?

    Thanks,

    Ken
