Re: Automatic connection for Vista peer-to-peer (ad hoc)?
Yes, unfortunately it is a "feature" of windows to automatically close the
ad-hoc network when "everyone else" disconnects (but mine apparently doesn't
follow this, because it stays on when out of range and waits for others to
reconnect >:O )
But that's not the problem. I Have gotten ICS to work properly in the effect
that it is seen as an ad-hoc and other users can use the network (and
internet) with it. However, I also cannot cause the network to start
automatically either. (Ideally, the server would automatically power-on and
get users to the internet without anyone logging on).
I can't seem to find any windows utility to do this, though.
