Is the Win2000 machine running a proxy server or is it using the ICS that comes with Windows? If it is running ICS then set your default gateway to the Win2000 internal IP adress. If you are using a proxy server then you need to set the web browser to connect through a proxy. In Mozilla got to edit<preferences<advanced<proxies. Then fill in the blanks. I do not believe it is your firewall settings.
