I am trying to set up a DHCP IP exclusion within the DHCP server which is coming with Internet Connection Sharing of Windows 7 but I'm having a hard time doing so. Consequently I got a 3rd party DHCP software and this gave me the perfect liberty to do so.

Now my problem is that I want to use ICS features in Windows 7 but need to disable the integrated DHCP server - how do I do that?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

You can't customize ICS all that much. If you only need routing and NAT services from it, consider just using RRAS instead. It is configurable and does not come with a bundled DHCP server.

It works on Windows 7? Rras I mean – Canadian Luke Apr 19 '13 at 0:45

You can disable DHCP and DNS proxying of the ICS in the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ICS\EnabledDHCP (DNS) registry setting. Set the 1 to 0 and then restart the service.
