Hi,

Yes also right click you network places icon go to properties.Right click on you local area connection properties. Click on TCP/IP properties and make sure it is set to Obtain IP address automotically and Obtain DNS automatically. Then what RobWill said should sort you out. Just make sure the username and password you use is that of one that has domain admins or administrator rights on the domain.

Kind Regards,

Johan Van Zyl
