How to configure a new Windows Server on my Network
Posted on 2012-09-10
This is basic but I would be very grateful if someone could outline the steps I must take, or point me to something which is clear.
I want my W2003 Server to be on the network, accessible from other computers, and with access to the internet via my router. I also need Active Directory for the application which I am going to run.
I have installed W2003 server on a new server. I have connected it via a LAN cable to my router. I have a number of computers with Windows 7 and XP linked wirelessly to the router and I know what the home wireless network is called. I can't find a name for the Workgroup except the wireless one.
I am not sure what to do next. Running ipconfig on the server does not return anything.
