Windows 2003 Server Setup
Posted on 2007-10-01
I have a Pentium 3 Gateway that I am trying to setup as a sever in my home.
I will give you some basics topology of how my network is setup.
From the outside of the house comes a cable that plugs into the Verizon DSL modem. From there it runs into port one on my 24 link sys gigabyte switch, which is an up link port. I have the sever plugged into port 2, desktop plugged into port 3, link sys router Access Point plugged into port 4, and finally another desktop plugged into port 5.
I have windows xp pro on all the machines. Windows server 2003 standard is on the server. I have set the server up as a Domain Controller and DNS.
However, the verizon modem handles DNS and DHCP also. Which are turned on. As for the Link sys router I have everything turned off on that except for the access point which forwards all requests to port 1 for the internet.
The problem that i am having is that I cannot get any machine to recognize the domain and the domain will not connect to the outside world aka the internet.
The whole point of this is to use active directory so I can use roaming profiles and such.
Any ideas on what is wrong?
