Server 2003 As A Client
Posted on 2006-04-30
I've got a machine non my home network that I'm using as an Application Server, running Windows Server 2003.
I bought a router yesterday. It is attached to my main computer, and the cable modem is attached to the router. The other machines on the network all connect to the router via a 10/100 Ethernet hub.
The XP client on my network connects fine. But the machine running 2K3 does not. It doesn't get an IP. The settings on both clients are the same: obtain IP auto, obtain DNS auto, CFMN installed.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled the network stack (all except TCP/IP, which would not be removed).
I've run the XP Network Setup Wizard via floppy disk. It seems to work, but same situation.
