What is this server going to do - why do you want NAT running on a Domain Contoller?

Is this the first server in the domain, or do you want it to join an existing domain?

Hello,

If you install Active Directory it is a domain! Also DNS will be configurred automatically during the Active Directory install Wizard.
I would not recommend using NAT on a server. If you want to share internet with more PC's just buy a router with NAT and Firewall functions. They are cheap and easy to configure and much more safe then the NAT function in Windows 2000!
DHCP create a scope in your IP range and activate the scope. It should not be difficult.
If you check out www.aj.com you can type in your questions and most of the times the correct answer is in there.

Best regards.

i agree with the above posts,, but i want to add a little bit...  if you want to use  a 2000 server to do nat, this can be done with RRAS (Routing and Remote Services) but it is really complicated and messy to set up... basically this feature tries to turn a server into a router (which is a bad idea from the start).  I would recommend buying a cheap router like infombp suggested.

all you have to do to install active directory is run dcpromo from the run line...... after that the setup depends entirely on what you want to do with your system. Each system is different.  Can you elaberate on what you want your AD to do?

i would go get a linksys or netgear router for $35.00 to do the NAT. They can manage an entire class C 254 clients with one external IP address.

all you have to do is install AD by running DCpromo at the run line....  then join the clients to the domain.

you will need 2 NICs for this

go to add remove programs--windows components and install Routing and remote access.

after it is installed you can get to the RRAS MMC by going to programs-administrative tools- RRAS
