I am having a similar problem Tom, although my connection is wireless. Like you I can share files and printers, ICS is enabled with the connection does not work on my host. See my post 'ICS Set Up But Not Working' just a few posts down from this post and I will check here in case things posted in either forum could help us both!

Use drTCP to change the MTU on both computer to 1400 click here

It could also be a firewall problem (you could risk disabling it for 10 seconds to test)
