    administrtive tools
    right click -- new scope
    follow the wizzard.

    after it is done delete the old scope and reboot your workstations.

    Quick question.  Is the your public IP address?

    If it is you should add a 2nd NIC and set it to 192.168.1.x and offer DHCP only on that NIC.

    Yes it's a public IP , but when i used to have a w2k workstations i was able to browse them with the same NIC while they used to have 192 IP addresses using the DHCP on my router , now the new xp workstations with the same way to get the 192 IP from the same router cannot be browsed from my server. or i cannot browse my server from them.

    i tried to change my public IP to 192 IP and I was able to browse
    But how can i browse using windows 2000 server or 2003 server with a Public IP
    I USED TO BE ABLE TO DO IT WITH 2K WORKSTATIONS , now xp workstations is not doing it

    Accepted Solution

    Well that is because they used net bios

    go into the network settings of each work station---- tcp/ip > properties> advance > enable netbios over tcp\ip
