router and network set up.
Posted on 2004-08-24
here is the deal.
I have a static ip address to which I need to configure the server to.
Now the set up is such that there is first a D-Link router and then the cables have to go from the router to the different servers.
The line coming in from the IP provider has to go to the router, from there I believe I have to open up an http port which is port 80 on the router and then connect to the server.
I do not have much experience with setting up networks, so I was wondering do I have to configure the server to the Ip of the rotuer? Do routers even have an Ip? or do I configure the server straight away to the static ip address from the tcp/ip settings.
It wont let me set up active directory unless I have configured to a static IP address or a DHCP server.
A prompt reply would be greatly appreciated since I believe this is not too hard.
