    I'm normally not this abrasive but what?

    • If your a networking student then you would have been given exposure to this already or handy pointers where to look
    • If your in a small business with no dedicated IT you'd most likely be using SBS which does it for you
    • I really hope your not an IT guy
    Having said all that I'm guessing that although the service is installed its not been configured. Configure the computer name, setup the connection to point to the server. Go into the DNS snap and set up the zones or configure it as a resolver or caching only.

    Failing that and if I have over reacted post again.

    Mr Kris,
    you could have just answered the question without being rude?
    and if the question was too stupid for you, you could have just ignore it.
    anyway, thanks

    I have to agree Kirok, please don't inject personal insults into the threads. If you can answer the technical question, go for it. However, keep the personalities out of the responses.
