I will try to discribe this as best as I can. I have a win2k server running and 2 clients currently on the network. I have a hub with all computers connected to it and an uplink running into a router.
until the money comes available to build a second box, I I have a domain set up and I am wanting to run all services on the one server system.
I am wanting to run DHCP, WINS, DNS, FTP, and Exchange. This is going to be a nightmare to accomplish if it is possible to run all these services on the same box.
Exchange is working fine and so it seems DHCP and FTP.
The DHCP server is giving out IP leases fine to the client systems(this also includes the wins and DNS server information). The weird this is that the clients can not ping or tracert back to the server even after they are assigned ip addresses from the server. Basiclly they get the IP from the server and then they are dead in the water.
I have a DHCP pool of 192.168.1.100-150 (available if needed later on) with 192.168.1.115-192.168.1.125 as the reservation. The server's ip address is 192.168.1.115.
So right now it does not look like DNS is working or working properly and that WINS is doing nothing for me.
I have also been dealing with functionality recently that at times a netbios ping of any client or the server from any seat will generate a reply from the routers or my ISP assinged ip. This seems to happen whenever I try to add an external DNS server setting to the computers.
Can someone please help me in determining what could be causing the clients to get IPs from the DHCP server and then not be able to browse the network or what setting need to be adjusted for this enviroment to work properly?
If you need any more information please let me know and I will provide aditional information
