I am trying to set up an active domain on my home network but i have run into a few problems.

First off the setup of the network is as follows:


The first problem i am having is setting up the static ip for the DNS.
The clients and server auto assign the ips to be:

ip address = ip of router
subnet = 255.255.255.0
default gateway = ip of modem

I then change these to:

ip address = ip between 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.254
subnet = 255.255.255.0
default gateway = ip of modem

the client or the server wont connect to the internet? How do i solve this problem?

The second problem i am having is connecting the clients to the domain. Regardless of the settings I have for the Tp/ICP i always get the same error which is:



how do i solve this problem?

I am using server 2003 and the clients are running XP Pro

cheers raf.

What is acting as your DHCP server?

Do an ipconfig /all on a client when you have the configuration where you are able to get out to the internet. Then post the output here.

The error you have up there is due to a wrong DNS setting on your client/workstation. You have to point your clients to the IP address of the server running as a DC.
