Choosing IP Addresses for the Internal and External Networks

If you use ICS, internal network addresses are chosen for you automatically. Your internal NIC will be reset to the address of 192.168.0.1. The rest of the 192.168.0.0 subnet is automatically allocated as DHCP addresses for clients on the internal network. Your ISP will provide you with the address of your External interface.

If you chose NAT, you can use any addresses that you want on the internal network, but using one of the "private" address ranges is perhaps the best choice (see sidebar). These addresses can be distributed through either the NAT server itself or a DHCP server. Your External interface(s) will use addresses supplied by your ISP just like ICS. The only difference is that ICS is limited to one address only.
