SBS2003 Server Can not go online on home network
Posted on 2007-07-30
I can't get my new server online -
Here is the setup -
Dell PowerEdge SC4400 Running SBS2003
Cablevision Cable Modem
Apple Airport Extreme Router
Linksys 8 port workgroup Switch
Home Wiring Closet
My server is plugged into a wall jack, feeding backto a wiring closet. In the closet all the ports are connected to a switch. Feeding the switch is the cable modem. My server says "disconnected" and wont get online. I also have a wireless router to the switch which works fine.
I have server set to 192.168.1.5 / router is .1 / subnet 255.255.240.0 ( as in router) DNS is internal to windows. The subnet is what the apple router is.
When i plug the wire from the server right into the cable modem and do auto obtain ip and dns it connects fine. If i go thru the switch or router it wont work - with either set IP or auto obtain. I cant leave the server just into the modem because i need to get my other computers online via wired and wireless.
Thoughts? The card shows disconnected - i cant even get a local IP or connect to the rotuer or another pc on the same subnet?
This is my first server so I know i am not phrasing the question right either, but I am desparate!
