Win 2008 networking
Posted on 2008-10-05
We have a windows 2000 webserver and sql server 2000 that we've had for years, so I rarely mess with the network stuff.
Now we've installed another Windows 2008 web server and I am trying to do the networking and can't get it to show my network in the network list so the computers can have access to one another.
Also, the internet doesn't work on the 2008.
I have 5 computers total, and 4 are all connected via the network. They all are on the same firewall. I don't see that I need to add it to my netgear firewall. I have a backup computer on the network and it isn't in the firewall and it is on the network fine. It uses windows vista.
So in short, what kind of steps do I need to take to get this new windows 2008 computer on my network? And with internet access?
I used the Network connection and properties and did the regular IP settings, not the new ones. And setup th gateway and such same as on my other pc's.
