Lan On 2 Pc's + Internet

  1. Problem to setup Lan On 2 Pc's + Internet sharing

    I have 2 PC's connected by crossover cable. The one has an onboard lan card and the other one an Ethernet PCI card.
    Both use XP Pro OS.
    I did the setup for Internet, File and Printer sharing a year ago. All was working fine. Internet and mail from both PC, s.
    Then I had to format my PC and had to do the setup over again. I used XP's CD and thought it to be easy.
    This is my problem now:File and printer sharing is right. No problem.
    But I can connect to the internet from my PC (Ethernet card and Smartlink internal modem), but not from the other one. I did the setup as before.
    I also try to use the auto IP setting. If I ping the other PC then it works fine, but if I use the manual IP setup of 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 for the other PC then they do not ping but file and printer sharing is right.
    Question:
    What should the IP settings be for both PC's.
    What must the Firewall settings be set to.

    I would appretiate any help
    Thanks
    Martin
