NT server setup question

I am setting up a NT4 server that will be a member of our domain, however it will reside in another city using a different router. The IP address of our router is 10. ***.0.1 and theirs is 10. ***.4.1 Should I be able to setup the IP configuration to point to their router with a static IP address during this setup or do I have to be attached to that router. When I am configured with their router with thier TCP/IP info I can see our domain, share files etc? however I cannot ping the new server (or anything else). If I point to our router and give it a static IP address everything appears to work fine.

You can set it up locally and ship it to the new location. Once it is their, you will need to change the IP and gateway to work locally.

Can you ping their computers at all ?

I hope this helps !

Yes I can ping everything that is setup with their IP range, the old server and the router, which is in Atlanta. I can?t ping their new server, which is here in Charlotte, when it?s configured with their router info.

Do I understand you correctly; I can?t use their router and IP configuration while it?s here connected to my LAN using our router?

Correct. You cannot use their router info since the subnet info is not correct for your location.

If you can ping their network , then all that needs to be done is to change the IP address etc when the computer arrives at their location, or do it before shipping it ( probably a better idea, since otherwose you will have login problems ).
Use the info from the other machines on their network as an example.

I hope this helps !
