Need help setting up a home network lab for mcse training
Posted on 2004-10-29
Here is my situation. I have dsl physically connected to a wireless router. I have a windows 2000 server with two nic cards. One is physically connected to the wireless router for internet access, the second is connected to a hub. I have 3 clients connected to the hub-WinNT, Win 2K, and XP Pro. I want to setup a "true" domain for training. I want to setup DNS and DHCP on the server, I want to setup a firewall(I assume it should be set on the nic that is connected to the wireless router) I was thinking of setting up a stand alone DNS/DHCP server? What is the best way to go about this entire setup? Specifically, what do I setup first? DNS, DHCP, the firewall? Do I create my own subnet? Will the wirelss router mess up my domain? Should I create static ip's on my nic cards for the clients? Also, how do I get internet to work through the clients? ICS. My biggest objective is to make this 4 pc setup as true to a real world domain as possible. Help is appreciated.
