Hi eveybody,

Does anybody came across a 2003 server that doesn't
accept critical updates from microsoft. It seems to me as an IE security issue!!
I have it in AD with 4 pcs(upgradable ), a cable modem and a router.
Is it better to set the server as the DHCP instead of the router?
Does it matter? or should i just use the server as the IP provider and run NAT on the router.
Thanks.

Amine.

By default it wont let you install but usually prompts you to add as a trusted site. You should just add it as a trusted site in IE and the issue will go away.

Also I prefer to use the server for dhcp and dynamic DNS as it usually offers more configuration, flexibility and in my opinon seems to make the DC's happy - depending on your router and your requirements in your domain.
