Connect SBS 2003 to the Internet

by TheSiliconValleyConnection / March 19, 2004 2:21 PM PST

I have just installed SBS 2003 and am having trouble getting connected to the internet. My machine is connected to a small home network via a SMC router. I tried using every senario via the wizard but cannot quite get there.

I am simply trying to get familiar with the product and have no need to use some of the advanced features now like Exchange but do want to connect to the internet.

A second though, the router always give the following addresses all of the time.

IP 192.168.1.102
SUB 255.255.255.1
Gate 192.168.1.1
DNS 1 206.13.28.12
DNS 2 206.13.29.12

Can I set the server up to think the router is a statc IP and add another NIC and use that to attach to the LAN?

The subnet mask looks incorrect. Try 255.255.255.0 instead.

As to Static IP, try all the same numbers and for the machine IP, 192.168.1.10

In closing, the router is a static IP. The machine is not but could be.

You could add another NIC, attach it, but configuration would be more work than what you have now.

I mistyped, the mask is 255.255.255.0. Are you saying that I should set up the Server as a DHCP Client and automaticcaly obtain an IP or should I set the server to use a hard coded IP with the spec's I menioned before ?

Thanks,

Tom

"I mistyped, the mask is 255.255.255.0."

Good to read that.

"Are you saying that I should set up the Server as a DHCP Client and automaticcaly obtain an IP or should I set the server to use a hard coded IP with the spec's I menioned before ?"

With all due respect, can you reveal why you haven't tried this? Its a few minutes to change these settings and retest.

As to which, for a server, I use static IPs since I might want to run it as a server...

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
