Connect to Internet from Windows server 2008
Posted on 2012-04-06
When trying to exchange the old gateway server OS 2003 to a new server with OS 2008 I have problems to connect to the internet from the OS-2008 server despite I can ping the gateway. In OS-2003 you have the option "Connect using a broadband connection that is always on" which is missing in OS-2008. The only option I have is "Connect using a broadband connection that requires a username and a password", which is also an option in OS-2003. When I use the available option in OS-2008 and leave username and password blank I receive an error and no connection is established. Both servers NIC are configured identically (fix ip-address: 10.1.1.1, subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and default gateway 10.1.1.254) but not connected at the same time. For testing I move the ethernet cable from one server to the other. What can I do?
