Setting up an Office Network
Posted on 2003-10-23
Hey howz it going?
To start with I am a newbie for networks, so please don't mind if I end up asking stupid question.
Like right now we have around 7 PC's in the office that need to go up on an network. One of them is a MS Small Business Server. We will be installing WinXP pro on the remaining PC's. Now me questions...
1. How would I know if DHCP is set up on the server? Cos I guess it's need for a Domian.
2. How and what range of IP's should I assign? Should the range start from the IP of the router that's connected to the internet.
3. If I want to network a printer...where should it be connected to the server or the router or switch? And how do I assign an IP for it?
I don't know if I have confused you plp with the questions. Let me know if I missed out anything else.
Thanx a lot plp in advance.
