Classic IP vs Internet Sharing Classic
It seems that Classic applications cannot access IP services if Internet Sharing is enabled.

[robg adds: I took one for the team and fired up Classic for the first time in months ... and this appears to be true! When Internet Sharing is enabled, IE 5.1 in Classic cannot load any sites. Disable sharing, and (even without a Classic restart), IE 5.1 loads all pages fine. Anyone know a workaround?]

Sharing activated

Originated Date: 16-Apr-2003

"Open/Verify" means it has made it past their In box and they

This also comes up if you use a 3rd party 'net sharing tool, such as
IPNetShareX or sunShield. So, it's not just something strange that
Apple's built in controller does with ipfw, but Classic and ipfw or natd
in general.

It worked on my machine up until 10.2.5.. When I updated to 10.2.5 it stoped working.

lol, "took one for the team" -- that actually made me laugh out loud :-)

I can't remember the last time I booted classic, and to be honest, I'm totally fine with that.
