Windows 7: Is it possible to activate ICS and homegroup together w

Is it possible to activate ICS and homegroup together w

As title. I have two computers which is connected with cross over cable. Before I activate ICS to share internet connection, I managed to make two computers in a homegroup where they can share files and printer etc. After that, I bridged my 2 LAN cards, and activate the ICS. In my bridges LAN, it auto changed to 192.168.0.1 which I think is normal for ICS. Then my another PC set an IP of 192.168.0.20 with it's gateway and DNS 192.168.0.1, and I suceeded to share internet connection. But by this way, I am unable to linked both PC under a homegroup, thus can't share anything besides internet.

So, my question is, is it possible to do both file/prrinter and internet share among two PCs at the same time ? What's the setting have to be done ? Both using Windows 7 x64.

Sorry if my question a bit dumb but I am not so good in networking stuff.

About all you can do is enable all sharing settings in both the home network and the public network and hope for the best. I'm not sure if will work with your configuration. Only way to find out is to try.

Somehow I solved the problem with bridged connection. The problem is that in my PC the bridged LAN is identified as 'unidentify network'. And my PC LAN has IPv6 turned off. I came across that a post saying that homegroup is utilizing IPv6 so I turned it on. And then I try to force-changing my unidentify network to home network, and then everything just run smoothly, with internet sharing and file/printer sharing.
