    ICS is a Workgroup windows sharing program.It is designed to be used with 10 or less Computers.Your Internet cafe is most likely a Domain .Therefore you would need to have your friend join the Domain. If you can get the IP manager to give you the correct specific user info, and your friend is running the correct version of windows he will be able to connect.

    you could manually configure your ipstack, substituting the appropriate numbers for the cafe.
